Another Day

As I have written before, I do not farm for myself. Some of my frustration in the last post was job related, we'll leave it at that. If you are the praying type, would you consider praying for me? My goal was to farm for myself. When the kids came along, 3 in eighteen months, and a couple of flood years, I had to take a job to put bread on the table.
Enough about that, pray for me.

I'm more than a little put out by the political scene as well. Here in Iowa the Demoncrats control the governorship as well as both houses. In the last few weeks, they have killed a state Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman, tried to pass a collective bargaining agreement which would pretty much make any union employee of any kind eligible for third party arbitration for not just salary, but job requirements, class room size, insurance package, retirement, even staffing levels.

On the national scene, The Lizard Queen and Barack the Magic Negro seem to be doing an excellent job of tearing each other apart. With the help of the media, Hillary is once again proved to be a bald faced liar in relation to the "sniper" incident. With the Rev. Wright situation, even the liberal whites are mildly concerned about Barack's racist tendencies. All the while McMark-o-Cain sounds more and more liberal and less and less rational.

So, I've been thinking about it and I have a question, is it unBiblical for believers in Jesus Christ, worshipers of the God of Abram, Isaac and Jacob to pray that McMark-o-Cain would suddenly assume room temperature prior to his receiving the nomination? If we believe that the God of Heaven is actively involved in the affairs of men,
Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. This is repeated in verses 25, 32, and 5:21. In the middle of that passage are these verses.

34And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

35And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

36At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

37Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

If the God of the Universe controls who ruleth over men, is it not within His power to remove from positions of authority men who would deny Him or would act in ways contrary to God's revealed will? Since John McMark-o-Cain has not been and is not now a man of Godly character, having opportunity to elect someone else would be a good thing. That is possible only if McMark-o-Cain is no longer in a position to receive the nomination. So should we pray for his demise?

8 reasons I won't vote for John McCain

There is another option though, The Constitution Party. Sounds like Alan Keyes, Judge Roy Moore, and Chuck Baldwin are mentioned as possible nominees.
