The prayer that Rick Warren should have given as the invocation at the Inauguration of B. Hussein Obama:

Almighty God, the Author of the Bible and the Creator of the Universe, the one and only God there is, hear the humble pleas of your people today.

Oh God, we have no right to even ask for your blessings on this day. We are a wicked and sinful people.

We slaughter 4,000 innocent lives every 24 hours. We have made a mockery of your Holy Institution of Marriage and the family.

While claiming to be a friend to Israel, we have cursed your chosen people by plotting with her enemies.

We have forsaken you for every false god and idol man has created out of his rebellious mind. For all of these gross indiscretions we can only ask your forgiveness.

We deserve your wrath and judgment oh God, but pray that you will extend to us your grace and mercy.

We ask your blessings on our incoming President and his family. Oh God, I pray that they will surrender their hearts and lives to you and that they will be guided by the only Truth there is, your Holy Word.

May this nation today recognize that we are totally dependent upon you and that our blessings come from above as we faithfully and obediently follow and honor you with our lives.

May we turn back to you and the Truth of your Word and ask you to bless us as we do.

In the name that is above all names, the only name by which men are saved, the name of the Savior of the world, JesusChrist.
