In This Time of Uncertainty, What We Surely Need is Congress to Pray — Not Pray-Lite®, but Serious Pray

There are a lot of issues facing the world today. Serious issues. And even more serious issues facing God’s Blessed Nation of Jesusland the USA. Fortunately, we have a branch of government which is on it. These are the 535 (generally) elected men and women who write our laws and make sure our interests are represented in this great nation of ours. Surely, in this time of need, they should spend less time squabbling, less time debating laws, less time holding hearings, less time doing investigations, and less time passing legislation; yay, behold unto them, they need to pray, and pray more, and to make sure it be serious prayer (as opposed to Prayer-Lite®): “Bachmann Issues Call to Prayer.”

As the nation faces serious challenges, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., is asking Americans to join members of Congress in serious prayer next week.

She is inviting everyone to pray with lawmakers in spirit, humbly, on behalf of the nation.

Bachmann told WND:

“In light of al-Qaida-affiliated terrorists advancing toward Baghdad, Russian tanks rolling into Ukraine, Iran looking to deploy forces to ‘assist’ in Iraq, Iran continuing its nuclear weapon program, the Obama administration’s decision to release from Gitmo and potentially return to terrorism five of the Taliban’s top operational and policy leaders, China advancing both territorial claims and an aggressive cyber war against United States, the recent surge of thousands of illegal immigrants entering the United States with little to no resistance from our government, daily debt accumulation, the growing government intrusion in our health-care system and more, I am sending out a bipartisan invitation to all of my congressional colleagues to join together next week in Washington, where we can bow our heads and hearts and bend our knees before the Lord in prayer.

“I believe our nation would do well to humbly turn to the Lord and recognize that He and He alone is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is the author and the finisher of our faith.

“I hope my colleagues, along with citizens across the country, will join together next week in prayer, asking the Lord for wisdom, mercy, grace, protection, forgiveness and insight on behalf of our nation.”

FYI, this was published June 13, 2014, and written by WND’s Garth Kant.

I have mixed opinions on this. On the one hand, it’s ridiculous and a waste of time and I hate that they’re doing this on taxpayer-funded time. On the other hand, with Congress now having the lowest approval rating of any institute ever polled by Gallup, them wasting their time not passing stupid laws might be preferable.

With 112 comments on the WND article, many are less concerned than I. For example, the top four comments are:

  • “Junglemechanic” – “Call the ball, time and place, I’ll be there. We as a nation and a people are a mess, especially when we replaced God with all kinds of perversions, and called it fairness and equality.”
  • “koinea” – “Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess…Jesus is Lord and our salvation.”
  • “gardennigal1” – “There are always troubled times, but the government decided they do not need God and became their own god. Look where that has gotten us.”
  • “Faithful American” – “GOD bless Michele Bachmann: How I wish this CHRISTIAN woman was PRESIDENT!”

I shouldn’t be surprised. Many WND readers (and writers) would prefer that America be a theocracy like much of the Middle East, just a Christian theocracy because we, of course, worship the Right Version of the Right God.
