9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
Myrlie Evers Williams, was the first woman to offer an inaugural prayer and the first lay person. Many on the left were distracted by her color, her sex, and her life lived as a civil rights activist and paid no attention to the true essence of her “prayer.” Those on the right recognized that she skipped “Under God” while quoting our Pledge of Allegiance in her “prayer.” I watched this portion of the Inauguration live and it was the only portion I watched live because I had to leave immediately after she was done. I know what I heard and I heard a woman who did not begin her prayer with beseeching God, she started with, “America.” America is not a god. America is not divine. America is a land not a spirit. This was her first error. As the course of her “prayer” continued many seemed perplexed to even understand that she was praying. The President himself looked up and saw that everyone else’s head was bowed so he did the same. It was a creepy and muddled “prayer.” I’m not offended that she was a she, or that she was a lay person, I do not believe God only hears ordained male ministers’ prayers. What was offensive was not her skin color, her political party, her laity, it was that she was not praying to God the Almighty of Heaven and Earth, the True God, she was praying to the underworld, darkness, speaking to dead spirits and asking for a blessing from a god that is not God the Father. In her closing she, I believe, accidentally prayed to Jesus and compounded her request in his name by adding, “and to all who are holy,” in an attempt to manage her mistake. I am going to include the video and the transcript of her prayer. God is a Holy and righteous God who cannot bless sin. As I heard later in the evening via youtube, President Barack Obama asked for greater Gay rights for “our gay brothers and sisters.” I grieved in my spirit knowing that God cannot bless this country. We deserve judgment on this nation, and the only thing holding that judgment back is the one true God in His divine mercy.
Full Text of “Prayer”
“America. We are here. Our nation’s capital. On this day, January the twenty-first, twenty-thirteen, the inauguration of our 45th president, Barack Obama. We come at this time to ask blessings upon our leaders. The president, vice president, members of congress, all elected and appointed officials of the United States of America. We are here to ask blessings upon our armed forces, blessings upon all who contribute to the essence of the American spirit, the American dream. The opportunity to become whatever our mankind, womankind allows us to be. This is the promise of America. As we sing the words of belief, this is my country, let us act upon the meaning that everyone is included. May the inherent dignity and inalienable rights of every woman, man, boy and girl be honored. May all your people, especially of the least of these, flourish in our blessed nation. One hundred and fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation and fifty years after the March on Washington, we celebrate the spirit of our ancestors, which has allowed us to move from a nation of unborn hopes and a history of disenfranchised votes, to today’s expression of a more perfect union. We ask too, Almighty, that where our paths seem blanketed by throngs of oppression and riddled by pangs of despair, we ask for your guidance toward the light of deliverance and that the vision of those who came before us and dreamed of this day, that we recognize that their visions still inspire us. They are a great cloud of witnesses unseen by the naked eye, but all around us, thankful that their living was not in vain. For every mountain, you gave us the strength to climb. Your grace is pleaded to continue that climb for America and the world. We now stand beneath the shadow of the nation’s Capitol, whose golden dome reflects the unity and democracy of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Approximately four miles from where we are assembled the hallowed remains of men and women rest in Arlington Cemetery. They who believed, fought and died for this country. May their spirit infuse our being to work together with respect, enabling us to continue to build this nation, and in so doing we send a message to the world that we are strong, fierce in our strength, and ever vigilant in our pursuit of freedom. We ask that you grant our president the will to act courageously but cautiously when confronted with danger and to act prudently but deliberately when challenged by adversity. Please continue to bless his efforts to lead by example in consideration and favor of the diversity of our people. Bless our families all across this nation. We thank you for this opportunity of prayer to strengthen us for the journey through the days that lie ahead. We invoke the prayers of our grandmothers, who taught us to pray, “God make me a blessing.” Let their spirit guide us as we claim the spirit of old. There’s something within me that holds the reins. There’s something within me that banishes pain. There’s something within me I cannot explain. But all I know America, there is something within. There is something within. In Jesus’ name and the name of all who are holy and right we pray. Amen.
“Evers-Williams’ denominational affiliation can best be described as promiscuous. “I have been Baptist, I have been Methodist, I have been Presbyterian. I have attended all those churches depending on where I have lived my life.” Source Here.
“She has moved from one church community to another—worshipping as a Baptist, a Methodist, or a Presbyterian, depending on convenience. She explained her easy-peasy faith in an interview in the Washington Post:
I have never been shy in mentioning my relationship with what I call God, a Spirit, and there certainly have been times over the years that I have called on him — or her, if you wish — in public. I deeply believe that there is a Supreme Being that sees us through.” Source Here.
Apparently all that time in various denominations hasn’t taught her the truth in God’s Word. God is not a ‘her’ and God does not allow diviners or necromancers to be blessed. Choosing this woman to do the prayer I believe was the goal all along. I believe Barack Hussein Obama is going to be more blatant in his objection to the true God of the bible and more open about his pagan beliefs. I could be no more right than using his own Inauguration Speech as an example. Like I stated above I only watched Myrlie Evers Williams’ “prayer” live before having to leave. Once I heard in the evening news what Obama said during his speech I was aghast and grieved even more concerning the direction this country is going. Once again let me preface that I have nothing against the color of this man’s skin, his idiocy (for many idiotic presidents have gone before him) but it is his blatant disregard and abhorrence of the truth of who God is that astounds me.
