There are two ways which God destroys the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). 1) He removes them physically from this world and into the next by death - scripture shows countless examples of this. 2) He saves them by taking them out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of His marvelous light - scripture portrays this side as well. We are therefore to frame our prayers accordingly and not have an insatiable blood lust reminiscent of Colosseum days where Christians were martyred for sport or in papal tyranny days when protestants were tortured in the name of God. Remember what Christ said to the sons of thunder (James and John), "you know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." (Luke 9:55,56)
We should pray to mother earth for the saftey of our saviours; Obama, Gore, and Clinton. Gore saved us from Global Warming last Winter(well maybee he went too far)Obama saved us from Economic collaps by raising taxes, taking over Free Interprize, and passing laws that will make everything cost more. And Clinton saved us from.....from....Oh yeah, the definition of "is"
If someone is just going to do evil then it is best for God to take them out of this world.
But we pray if it be God's Will to change them first.
2 Timothy 4:14 (KJV) Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
Psalm 58: 6-7 (KJV) 6. Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. 7. Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
Man, O Man ! This Article Brings The Doctrine Of "Imprecatory Prayer" To A Different Meaning; The "Death-Wishing" ("Death-Praying") Of An Eternal Human Spirit, Soul & Body Of A Man CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF ALMIGHTY GOD !
I Have Personally Called For The U.S. Constitutional Federal-State-&-Local Legal Investigation, Indictment & Prosecution Of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA For The High Crime(s) Of "TREASON" ("Usurpation" & "Posing" As "The President Of The U.S.A.") Against The U.S. Constitution, The 50 States' Constitutions & Peoples Of The U.S.A.--BUT I HAVE NEVER CALLED FOR &-OR ADVOCATED HIS IMMEDIATE PHYSICAL DEATH IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM !
My Understanding Of THE HISTORIC AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE SCRIPTURES--THE ETERNAL WORD, LAW & CONSTITUTION OF ALMIGHTY GOD Is:
"The LORD Is Not Slack Concernig His Promise, As Some Men Count Slackness; But Is Longsuffering To US-(HUMANS)-WARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY (HUMAN) SHOULD (PHYSICALLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY &-OR SPIRITUALLY) PERISH (IN ETERNAL-HELL & THE LAKE OF FIRE): BUT THAT ALL (HUMANS) SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE."--2 Peter 3:9
*I BELIEVE THIS "DEATH-WISHING" & "DEATH-PRAYING" IS UNGODLY, UNGODLIKE, UNCHRISTLY, UNCHRISTLIKE, UNCHRISTIAN, YEA UN-JUDEO-CHRISTIAN; UN-JUDEO-CHRISTLIKE; UN-JUDEO-CHRISTIANLIKE & CONTRARY TO WORLD EVANGELISM !

But Imprecatory Psalms say...
Psa 55.15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
Psa 58.6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. 7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
Psa 69.23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake. 24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them. 25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
Psa 109.6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. 7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. 8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office. 9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow......etc

I suppose Christians were supposed to pray for the success of HItler too???? Saying that all government, no matter what it does, how far it goes, is legitimate in God's eyes, is just plain ridiculous. What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?
There is a distinguishing characteristic here which makes both sides correct and consistent with scripture and the behavior of godly men; including our Lord, who, on a notable occasion became violent, and pronounced some pretty weighty woes, and caustic denunciations on others. See for example also, Moses, who showed both of these forms of behavior. The distinction... anyone?
I think in this case, Angela, we should take example from David and Daniel, who despite both serving wicked and evil kings, acknowledged that they they exercised the office given to them by God. David refused to lift his hand against God's anointed, despite Saul trying to murder him. Remember the powers that be are ordained of God, and we should respect them as such even though we might not always agree with what they do.
Hey folks, Before we start casting stones at this Facebook page, let's take a closer look at actual prayers in the Bible for those who make themselves God's enemy. Of course we hope and pray for the president and other unregenerate leaders in civil authority to become Christians, but we also have examples of imprecatory prayers for the wicked in Scripture - especially the Psalms.

Facebook should not allow such garbage! May they repent and turn to Jesus! Promoting hatred against Obama is wrong and promoting prayer that invokes harm on others is wrong. Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: 1 Thessalonians 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
This is a great study, especially interesting are the words "all men". I take it that "all" really does mean "all". Sure it does!
