IMPRECATORY PRAYER

IMPRECATORY PRAYER
October 8, 2009

I'm quite familiar with Intercessory (positive/blessing) prayer for others, having prayed in this context for many years. However, I do not use "Imprecatory Prayer" (which is negative, curse prayer). (See related blogs: "Negative Prayer," November 22, 2005; "Prayer--Positive and Negative," August 19, 2007; "Hermetics and Negative Prayer," October 20, 2008.) In an article in the Dallas Morning News on October 5, 2009 (check it out at www.dallasnews.com), there is an article about a Jewish man (Weinstein) filing a lawsuit against Christian ministers of the Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches (www.chaplaincyfullgospel.org). The lawsuit claims the Chaplaincy is not a religious organization but "a front for anti-government extremists." The plaintiff has been harassed since he began protesting Christian proselytizing at his alma mater, the Air Force Academy. His family has endured feces thrown at their house, animal carcasses left on their doorstep, a swastika emblazoned on their home, etc. Weinstein reports the number and intensity of threats against him increased this year after Gordon Klingenschmitt and others of the organization offered several imprecatory prayers based on Psalm 109 and Deuteronomy 23 in The Holy Bible. Weinstein claims Klingenschmitt and others have been inciting their followers to violence. Would you believe that Gordon Klinschmitt admits the prayers?

Here are some words from Psalm 109, from The New King James Version of The Holy Bible, which is titled "To The Chief Musician, A Psalm of David" (and I recommend reading the entire Psalm): "Set a wicked man over him, and let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is judged, let him be found guilty. Let his days be few, and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; let them seek their bread also from their desolate places. Let the creditor seize all that he has, and let strangers plunder his labor. Let there be none to extend mercy to him, nor let there be any to favor his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off, and in the generation following let their name be blotted out."

Considering that Christianity is about Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ said we are to bless those that curse us and to love our neighbors as ourselves, how can people using imprecatory prayers call themselves Christian (and those of The Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches do)? For that matter, how can anyone pray in such a manner? Blackhearted evildoers are these! Make no mistake: The dark entities these people attract will respond to their prayers and carry out their wishes as they are able.
