It is Time to Pray and March For Senator Obama

I am a political junkie with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Criminal Justice. It is my belief that we should pray and march in North Carolina before the May 6, 2008, primary election. We can't wait to react after the Democratic Party awards the Clintons the nomination. We must stop this insanity before it is too late.

According to Hillary Clinton the superdelegates should vote for her because it is for the good of the party. If we use her same “logic” those same superdelegates should vote for Obama now (today) for the good of the country and the Democratic Party.

As a people we know spin and bull ---- when we see and hear it. The only way that Hillary can win the nomination is if the Superdelegates over rule all the voters in the states that Obama won. How can any black person support the candidate and party that will do that to us after our years of loyal support of that party?

We all have special talents and divine purposes. God has created someone for just this time in history. That person or group of people needs to start the movement for “ALL’ Obama supporters Blacks, poor, Whites, young, old, Asians, Hispanics to match in NC before the next primary election. We must voice our demand that the Superdelegates honor the primary election results and rules passed before the start of the primary.

After Obama won in Iowa, I posted “A Prayer for The Protection of Obama” on Part of my post:

“As I completed my assignment from God (writing my book) “A Case of Racial Discrimination and Retaliation Real or Imagined." He placed 2 Chronicles 7:14 in my heart: I am to declare His words to the world: “If my people, which are called by my Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (KJV)

Lord we come before You this day seeking your face Lord, seeking your protection God as we venture into our new political reality. We believe that we will soon witness the manifestations of the promises that you made to Dr. Martin Luther King and our forefathers God. Thank You Lord for the fact that we are living during this time.

Lord God please protect Senator Barack Obama as he matches towards his divine destiny. Lord Father God we praise your Holy Name Jesus. God we know that the enemy comes to seek, to devour, and to destroy. Father God please protect Obama from the people of this world who do the enemy’s works on the earth.

Please God place it in the hearts and minds of this nation and its people the wisdom and courage to demand and respect an orderly, fair, and impartial political process during this historic election year. Please God heal this nation from the hurts and division of the last two presidential elections.

Please God let Americans behave as one nation united under God. Father, help us to turn from our wicked ways God. Help us Lord to daily seek your face God. Jesus we praise you and we glorify your Holy name.

You are so Holy Lord. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the Glory. Forever Amen."

Vera Richardson author of “A Case of Racial Discrimination and Retaliation Real or Imagined.”

Why should people pray for Obama? Whether or not they are voting for him is irrelevant...although if you believe in prayer and therefore the Word of God then you should be only praying for Obama's salvation and indwelling of the Holy Spirit and not for him to become president. (I would like to add that Obama is a man who once said in a television interview that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" after making a "mistake" with a boy, and that's why he supports all forms of abortion).
The Bible says to pray for our leaders, so IF Obama becomes president then we have an obligation to pray for our nation as a whole under a man with the socialist beliefs he has. Remember, when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, when they are not the people mourn.
It makes better sense to not "march and pray" for Obama's candidacy, but to march and pray for God's WILL TO BE DONE IN OUR NATION AND ITS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your comment.

It is not my place to judge Senator Obama’s statements and actions. Those of us who are Christians all have our own personal relationship with God. We will all stand before God one day and he will judge us. My post and my prayer titled “A Prayer for The Protection of Obama” is for Obama’s personal physical safety on this earth.

My prayer and my request is that we as a nation pray because we don’t want the enemy referenced to in the bible to steal, devour, and destroy Obama or us individually and collectively as a nation.

Lastly, my prayer request is based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (KJV)
