A Biblical Prayer Against Wicked Leaders – Every Christian Should Pray This NOW

* The following was taken from Doug Giles’ new best-selling book, Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass (#1 on

A lot of people — for many, many serious reasons — are wringing their hands nowadays over the glide path our nation is tooling down thanks to the Marxist morons inside the Beltway.

Yep, at this writing, our current bevy of “elected” leaders care for that which is holy, just, and good about as much as badger cares what a prairie dog feels when he’s chewing on its carotid artery.

I’ve personally seen and heard many Christians buy into this handwringing over the state of our union and I have wondered aloud, “Why don’t you, dear Christian, cease to sweat these godless leaders and pray that God either convert them or take them out?”

Here in Psalm 2, David’s not sweating a culture’s smack-talking against God. He’s not curled up in the fetal position, sucking his thumb, and wetting his pants over their godless and goofy plots to be free of God and cut loose from His law.

Matter of fact, David’s reaction is just the opposite of what most doom-n-gloom Christians are boo-hooing about during these days of declension.

Indeed, David states that when rebel-kings start crap-talking God and attempt to dispense with His decrees — that God mocks them. Yep, Jehovah’s amused at these presumptive idiots who wish to lead a nation without giving God honor by adhering to His way.

And He doesn’t just laugh, as you’re about to see, He gets ticked off and that’s bad news bears for the fools attempting to cast loose from God’s gracious moorings.

Ergo, dear Christian, instead of chewing your fingernails down to the nub and buying the fear that saddles the faithless, why don’t you pray out loud Psalm 2 that David prayed and penned many moons ago?

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

Psalm 2

1 Why are the nations restless
And the peoples plotting in vain?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers conspire together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let’s tear their shackles apart
And throw their ropes away from us!”

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then He will speak to them in His anger
And terrify them in His fury, saying,
6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

7 “I will announce the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
Today I have fathered You.
8 Ask it of Me, and I will certainly give the nations as Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth as Your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron,
You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

10 Now then, you kings, use insight;
Let yourselves be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, that He not be angry and you perish on the way,
For His wrath may be kindled quickly.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed or sang in church against our formidable enemies and therein lies the Churches problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
