Nancy Pelosi Prays for President Bush

I think everyone pretty much understands that current House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and President Bush aren’t the best of friends. For starters they are in different political parties and their ideologies seem to diametrically opposed.

Regardless of what one thinks of Pelosi’s ideology and/or voting record she must be commended for what she does for the President.

According to this story, “Pelosi prays “all the time” for Bush to change policies.”

A sample,

“First of all, I pray for President Bush all the time, and I pray especially hard that he would sign the children’s health bill because it’s so important for America’s children,” she said on Fox News Sunday. “I pray that he makes the right decisions for the American people.”

Perhaps Madame Speaker has read the Apostle Paul’s words to Timothy,

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

Whether she prays for President Bush with sincerity is another question and one I’m afraid God is the only One capable of answering, but her actions remind all of us to pray for our leaders, whether or not we agree with their agendas.

What a great reminder for all us to pray for our Nation’s leaders regardless of their or our political leanings.

    The USA is not under a dictatorship. except that GW wishes it were, “as long as I am the dictator”.

    There is a supreme law of the land and it is the Constitution, not the dictates of men.

    Paul admonished to pray for the leaders of his time because the people had no say so. That is not the case today.

    Those who say that we should capitulate to evil today and cite scripture for it, should also cite the imprecatory prayers where the righteous prayed for death and evil upon the wicked. Including the Apostle Paul who placed an anathema on anyone who preached any gospel contrary to his.

    I pray everday for the President. I pray that God will remove him and all wicked leaders from office.

    Jesus prayed, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.” This is what I pray for. The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to cast George Bush and Nancy Prlosi and all the wicked into the lake of fire. This is what all Christians should be praying for. The destruction of God’s enemies. Not their enemies. God’s enemies.
    Those who devour his heritage, transforming themselves into angels of light for advantage.

    George Bush invaded, attacked and destroyed two nations that did us no harm and is threatening Iran and Syria. When all those nations want is to be left alone. All this for the two headed purpose of stealing their natural resources and to protect Israel.

    Israel attacked the USS Liberty and paid not for their crimes. The five Dancing Israeli’s admitted they had come to America to cover the “event” (of 9/11) proving prior knowledge and yet they were released.

    The true Prophets of God are proclaiming the complete destruction of America. And that in the very near future. And yet Christians go along with Americans in insulting God by asking him to “bless America.”

    Nancy Pelosi is a political whore and is praying for George Bush in hypocracy. She is a proponent of every moral vice and perversion that has infected this nation. As George Bush thinks he is King, Pelosi thinks she is Queen. If she were a true representative of the people, she would be putting action to her prayers by defending the Constitution.

    Wake up Christians. You are asleep and the thief is at the door. Jesus Christ is coming again and you are unprepared.

    Go to your football games, watch your sports and entertainment on TV, listen to your music. believe the lies of your government and your false teachers, profess your idolotrous America worship, the smoke of her burning will soon be witnessed by the entire world.

    Won’t Miss Nancy get in trouble with her buddies @ MoveOn and MediaMatters for praying?

  3. Laz says:

    Gene, I’m speechless and if you knew me you’d realize just how hard that is to do…

    Question, who are the “true Prophets of God”?

    Jim,
    The groups you mentioned are very religious in their own right, so no I don’t think they’ll object to Madame Speaker Pelosi’s supplications, especially since she didn’t pray in Jesus’ Name.

  4. Guna says:

    Gene,
    The bible does write, “God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” 2Pet3:9, and that should stop us from praying for the destruction of God’s enemies, but their salvation instead.
    In any case, praying for their destruction is a waste of time. Why? Because we know He is going to destroy His enemies one day, but “TODAY, if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts…”. Today, and until CHrist comes back for His church, God is in the business of saving, not judging.

    It is not God’s will for us to pray for their destruction. I don’t think the Lord Jesus would endorse such prayers.

  5. Gene says:

    Laz asked who are the true prophets of God?

    Well, Laz, I can tell you first of all who they are not. They are not Billy Graham who would rather sit in the circles of the powerful than to rebuke. Neither is it the shills of Israel who applaud the murder and mayhem this country has inflicted upon Afghanistan and Iraq and prostitute the gospel for the zionist cause.

    You know, Laz, there are muslims that when they see the Lord Jesus Christ coming in glory, will be converted and that conversion will shine the light of shame on today’s laodicean christianity. whose focus is more on Bradgelina and Britney Spears than on the condition of this nation. They are eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage and carrying on thei daily lives and making plans and praying for God to bless America, as if America is a righteous nation and know not that this nation is on the eve of destruction. And worst of all, they accept a pagan president as a Christian and invoke their congregations to pray for “our” President when I have never once heard an evangeliccal pastor say pray for our President when the President was Bill Clinton.

    Do you really think that God is unrighteous to allow this perverse nation to rule the world in tyranny and go unpunished? The misery and destruction George Bush has wrought is enough for God to turn this entire land into a wasteland of craters.

    There are prophets among us, Laz. You just haven’t been turning your attention to the right circles.

    I will give you one name to research and you can do with it what you want. William Branham.

    Guna, the bible does say that God is not willing that any should perish. But who are the “any” that he is talking about? Was it his wish that Judas should not perish? Then why does the bible call Judas the son perdition?

    I have no intention of getting into an unproductive debate on theology. it appears to me that the “any” are the called out ones and not the reprobate. Of that I am confident.

    And if God does not want us praying for their destruction. I guess we’ll have to pick and choose what we like about the book of Psalms and throw out the rest.

  6. Guna says:

    Gene,
    no debates needed on my part. When the bible uses the word ‘any’ it consistently means, well, ‘any’. The same for the next part of the same verse where it says “that ALL should come to repentance’, i take it to mean ‘all’ to mean all, not some. How do we decide when ‘any’ doesn’t mean ‘any’ and ‘all’ doesn’t mean ‘all’?

    As for your question, “Was it his wish that Judas should not perish?”, the scriptures own consistency asserts that salvation was and has never been denied from anyone who wanted it. “He who comes to me i will in no wise cast away”. The onus is on you to answer your own question in the negative.

  7. Gene says:

    Guna,

    Jesus said, “You did not choose me but I chose you.” Also he prefaced the scripture you gave with these words, “All that the Father gives me shall come to me……This is the will of the Father who sent me. that of all he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up at the last day.” In another scripture he excepted Judas who was the “son of perdition.”

    So!! Are we saying that salvation is not in the providence of God, but that we can “will” our own salvation or have it just because we “want it” outside of the soverign determination of God? I don’t think the scriptures suppoprt that supposition.

    So in my view, the “any” certainly mean “any” that he has called. “Who has resisted the will of God?” noone.

    As for denying salvation to someone, didn’t he deny Essau the inheritance though Essau was certainly sorry and pleaded, the bible says, with tears?
    Didn’t he say, “Jacob have I loved and Essau have I hated?” Even before either one had done anything wrong or right?

    We like to think that we are all “God’s children” (an erroneous doctrine).
    But the bible says that the wicked will be dust beneath our feet. In other words, their dead bodies will be fertilizer in the day he restores the earth.
    And that is their only purpose.

    Don’t be squeamish, my brother. Our Savior is coming to execute righteous judgement on the wicked, whoever they are.

    The shock and awe experiment that our government test ran on our own people on 9/11 and then later in Afghanistan and Iraq is going to look like firecracker demonstrations when this mighty Babylon comes in remembrance before God.

  8. osipov says:

    Gene, I agree with some of the things you say, but even I can’t agree with everything. I also pray for the president — I pray that he will lose his arrogant attitude and for once do what’s best for this country.

    I suspect God hears Nancy Pelosi’s prayer more so than Bro. Bush.

    As for the democratic organizations, believe it or not, just because they’re democrats, do you believe they wouldn’t approve or believe in prayer?? It’s very sad that Bush and the republicans have made people feel that way.

  9. Neil Aquino says:

    I’ll bet she is sincere.

  10. Guna says:

    Gene,
    You quote very commonplace verses indeed. I don’t intend to use Laz’s blog as a discussion forum so this’ll be my last.

    1. “all that the Father gave me, will come to me”, I’ve no problem with that and it was precisely my point, that it follows that the Lord Jesus doesn’t exclude all who ‘wish’ to come to him.

    2. “You did not choose me but I chose you.” – we have to accept that when the word ‘chose’, it may not necessarily mean ‘chosen to salvation’. Didn’t the Lord tell Peter, “Have I not chosen you TWELVE, yet one of you is the devil?” Since twelve is mentioned, Judas is included as the ‘chosen’. So we now have a problem, did the Lord choose a ‘devil’ for salvation? Obviously the word choose here meant being chosen to be with Him while on this earth. Context is important.

    3. “Jacob have I loved and Essau have I hated?” – again context is important. In Romans 9-11, Paul is explaining to the Jews of the sovereignity of God’s choosing of Israel (Jacob) to be His people, not the choosing of Israel to salvation. And by the way, if you’ve ever read the OT through to the end, you’ll notice that God “the younger shall serve the older” at the boys’ birth, but only said “Jacob I have loved and Esau i have hated” at the end of the OT, in retrospect of the evil and cruelty of the Moabites (Esau’s descendents).

    4. What gives the idea that if I accept God’s offer of salvation it means i’ve earned (willed) it? If i’m in prison and someone pays my ransom, and the jailor opens the door, the fact that i can choose to stay in prison or accept the freedom given doesn’t mean that i’ve ‘earned’ my freedom?
    I completely agree that in my natural state, i have ‘not seeked God’ and would not have. But God came to seek and to save and told me about my real self, and offered the hand of salvation through Jesus Christ, I received the salvation offered, not because i earned in any way, but with a grateful thanksgiving for what was accomplished on the cross. All Glory be to Him.

    p/s: I absolutely agree with you that Jesus will come in all his ‘awful’ness and will execute perfect and righteous judgement upon all who disbelieve and are reprobate. I don’t squeam at that fact, it its that fact that drives me to share the gospel to all, ‘that some may be saved’, instead of praying for people’s destruction.

    Thank you, brother. The Lord’s grace and peace be upon you and all who read this insightful blog (Laz, that last bit was for you!haha…)

    You can go to my blog at gunaseelan.wordpress.com and contact me there if you wish.

  11. Laz says:

    Thank you all for your input, it is very much appreciated.

    Guna, I have no problem if this blog is used as a “discussion forum” (LOL).

    Please feel free to share your views and experiences, and this goes for everyone else here as well. The worst that can happen is that we learn something from one another and that’s not so bad is it?

  12. Gene says:

    Thank you, Guna for your commentary.

    Unlike the Catholic church and their Church Fathers we Evangelicals have been unable to arrive at any “unanimous” opinions on much of anything. LOL

    I think our disagreement among other things is probably in the area of election and predestination.

    There is an excellent treatise by C.H. Spurgeon on “Jacob have I loved and Essau I have hated” that you can find a link to.

    I would highly reccomend it to anyone looking for insight into the subject.

  13. Jason says:

    I’m trying to figure out what is more unbelievable, the idea of Pelosi praying, or the possibility of the Republicans electing a Mormon that has flip flopped on abortion.

    I guess “free elections” really means choosing between a red or blue flavored snowcone.

  14. Laz says:

    Jason,
    Why is it ‘unbelievable’ that Pelosi prays?

    So-called free elections are centered around the “Golden Rule”, whoever has the gold makes the rules.

  15. Gene says:

    Anybody wonder what that picture above of Pelosi and GW is suposed to convey?

    Pelosi looks like a proud mother hen watching protectively and admiringly over her son, while GW is portrayed as a bespectacled serious, studios and thoughtful executive of the people.

    Who do they think they are fooling? W still looks dumb and without a clue. An empty suit.

    Reminds me of those shots they showed some time back of W and Condi locked face to face in serious philosophical debate.

    How can anybody who knows anything of Bush’s history of boozing, partying and sexual perversion(which reportedly continues to this day) believe that this moron has any mature thought in his head?

    Oh well, I guess we’re stuck with Ahab(outside of martial law) until Jezebel takes over in 13 months.

  16. Laz says:

    Jason,
    I skimmed through the links but it still does not mean she doesn’t pray.

    Whether or not she’s praying to the One and Only Living God, well, that’s something which only He knows and we can only speculate about.

    Gene,
    Indulge my curiosity, do you listen to Michael Savage?

  17. Gene says:

    Laz, Who is Michael Savage?

  18. Laz says:

    Never mind Gene

  19. Gene says:

    Laz, I looked up Michael Savage, and from all I can gather, he is a rougher, tougher version of Rush Limbaugh and Shaun Hannity, which means he is a right wing Bush eternal war monger water boy for American imperialism and doesn’t have a thing in common with real Christians. So what is your point in asking me if I listen to him?

    No offense.

  20. Laz says:

    Gene,
    Fair enough, I just asked because of the following line,

    Who do they think they are fooling? W still looks dumb and without a clue. An empty suit.

    Savage uses the “empty suit” line quite a bit. Your comment just reminded me of it. Don’t read too much into it.
