Christians: should we employ imprecatory prayer regarding John McCain?Submitted by 57chevypreterist on Mon, 03/17/2008 - 09:36
I have been wrestling with this issue for several weeks now. Here is an interesting website on this subject.
I hold no personal animosity against Senator McCain, and I certainly do not wish him any physical harm, but what if we were to pray for his demise as the GOP candidate? I do not mean for God to necessarily "take him out", per se, but, hey, what if He did render the Senator unable to discharge the duties of the presidency, say, right before the convention? Would that pave the way for Ron Paul to become the nominee?
Is it right for us as Christians to pray in such a fashion? Any thoughts?
*Note: I am editing this post by adding the following*:
From the link above:
"Imprecatory prayer is a last resort appeal to God for justice."
I also changed the title from "Christians: should we employ imprecatory prayer against John McCain?" to "Christians: should we employ imprecatory prayer regarding John McCain?"
