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 “leaders” care for that which is holy, just and good about as much as a badger cares what a prairie dog feels when he’s chewing on his carotid artery.
I’ve personally seen and heard many Christians buy into this hand wringing 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 sort 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 degrees 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 numb and buying the fear that saddles the faith-less, why don’t you pray out loud Psalm 2 that David prayed and penned many moons ago?
Psalm 2 (KJV)
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begot- ten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Get Doug Giles’ new best-selling book, Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass It’s grist for the warrior’s mill. Pure fire.
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 sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s 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.
