For the President and His IRS: A Parson’s Prayer

Written by John Kirkwood on May 22, 2013

But if their hearts remain in the spirit of Pharaoh, then may the blood of 50 million of your children that cry out for vengeance be the answering flood. If they will not taste of the promise of life and life abundant then let them taste of the promise of the millstone and the gnashing of teeth.

Father, it is our most sincere prayer that the God who met Saul of Tarsus on the Damascus Road call out again to those kicking against the goads in America. Be unto them that transforming light of truth that draws them to part with their prior error and to consider it dung. May your peace envelop the rebel heart and forevermore change the destiny of those who take your hand.

But if your voice is spurned and your love unrequited then may your promise to the wicked be sure and swift. May the righteous who are persecuted for righteousness sake be avenged and may the world know that the God who is love is a God that is just, and His wrath is both real and dread.

If these who publicly profess your name in word only to profane it in conduct, will not take your open hand Lord, then let them hear your hallowed voice – “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of iniquity.”

Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto He who sits upon the throne and unto the Lamb forever and ever. We ask this in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


You see, Mr. President, you can cover the name of Christ when you speak at Georgetown, you can tell the world that we are no longer a Christian nation, you can even instruct your nameless, faceless and godless cronies to threaten soldiers who share their faith and chaplains who pray “in Jesus name,” but you will never stifle true believers from letting their light shine.

Stoke the furnaces, Mr. President, if you must and yet still will we pray that the one true God has mercy on your soul.
