Let Us Puke

From Holden:

Your president lead a prayer today, which happens to be the National Day of Prayer.

Does it feel to you that we have had quite a few Days of Prayer recently? Last fall Chimpy declared Septmeber 10th to be the National Day of Prayer and Rememberance, and on February 3 of this year he attended the National Prayer Breakfast. Makes me wonder when we will have a National Prayer Hour, or why we don’t have a National Prayer Lunch or National Prayer Afternoon Snack.

But back to today, when President HorseWanker lead the faithful in prayer:

And so we pray as a nation for three main reasons. We pray to give thanks for our freedom. Freedom is our birthright because the Creator wrote it into our common human nature. No government can ever take a gift from God away. And in our great country, among the freedoms we celebrate is the freedom to pray as you wish, or not at all. And when we offer thanks to our Creator for the gift of freedom, we acknowledge that it was meant for all men and women, and for all times.

Second, we pray for help in defending the gift of freedom from those who seek to destroy it. Washington prayed at Valley Forge. Franklin Roosevelt sent American troops off to liberate a continent with his D-Day prayer. Today, we pray for the troops who are defending our freedom against determined enemies around the globe. We seek God’s blessing for the families they have left behind, and we commit to Heaven’s care those brave men and women he has called home.

AUDIENCE: Amen.

THE PRESIDENT: Finally, we pray to acknowledge our dependence on the Almighty. Prayerful people understand the limits of human strength. We recognize that our plans are not always God’s plans. Yet, we know that a God who created us for freedom is not indifferent to injustice or cruelty or evil. So we ask that our hearts may be aligned with His, and that we may be given the strength to do what is right and help those in need. We who ask for God’s help for ourselves, have a particular obligation to care for the least of our brothers and sisters within our midst.
