Why should you pray for Sarah Palin?

All you prayer warriors out there want to know, I betcha.

Well, PrayForSarahPalin.com has the answer for ya.

In Ephesians 6:14-18, the apostle Paul warns: A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God's armor so you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against might powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will be standing firm.

OK, now you should understand. (Even though they got the verse numbers wrong. It's Ephesians 6:10-13).

You should pray because you are fighting on God's side and God is on Sarah Palin's side. Barck Obama is "of the devil". He and Joe Biden are not "flesh-and-blood enemies" but rather "evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world" and "mighty powers" of the "dark (black) world." They are allied with "evil spirits" in high places (like Washington and New York). This is the final battle "in the time of evil." You must "stand firm" by voting for Sarah Palin (and old what's his name).

Thanks for the post Steve. Now after reading Ephesians 6, I see the reason prayer doesn't work is that people aren't following God's advice.

People who want to "be strong in the Lord" (6:10) should be wearing God's armor, including a belt of truth, a breastplate of righteousness, peace footwear, a shield of faith, a helmet of salvation, and a sword of the Spirit.

Palin supporters missed a perfect fundraising opportunity: selling God's armor to people wanting God to put Palin in office. Even with Halloween around the corner, I wouldn't know where to start to find such a costume.

Not to mention that Palin could have worn all this and avoided the clothesgate scandal.

Actually, someone beat you to that. I can't remember the exact details, but a mother reading to her daughter every night from the Bible thought to make a pajama set that was the entire "Armor of God", and went about sewing them up and has a site devoted to selling them. It's absolutely hilarious, with a twinge of depression that this stuff is taken slightly seriously...

Thanks Timothy for letting us know. I just looked and found the site you're talking about.

I guess no matter how ridiculous you think an idea is, apparently someone else has already thought of it. This is even more hilarious and/or pathetic than my idea though. Armor pajamas?!?

But it gets even worse. The mother didn't think of the idea on her own. Apparently, the idea for these PJs comes from the Almighty himself! From the site:

"At that moment, God gave me the idea how wonderful it would be if all children could have the opportunity to put on a pair of pajamas that symbolized the Armor of God...As they dress in the mornings, they should replace them with the spiritual Armor of God..."

I really wish this site was a parody and not the real deal...
