Notes From The Prayer Warrior

posted by on December 4 at 13:30 PM

A few words from the Prayer Warrior before he heads to Eastern Europe…


Get on your prayer “horses” and begin praying as I head to Latvia. I will be meeting with church leaders, universities, goverment officials, and will be speaking at city wide rallies regarding marriage, family, and Christian influence to change society.

Pray for stamina (10 hour flight), strength and energy to complete the task that God has assigned for me there.

Your Pastor,

Dear Jesus:

Please spice up Pastor Hutcherson's flight with ten hours of restless-leg syndrome. If you want to make it fatal, that's okay with me.

"Pray that the boys at Bel Ami Studios are still hiring out for wealthy, discreet American clergy. Hutch needs some action, or he's gonna explode!

If only that Haggard had just stayed in the flock to get his jollies, I wouldn't have to be going all the way to Latvia."

If those ninnies would quit praying maybe they could get something useful accomplished.

I pray for Latvia in their time of trial.

Fof real. Even if I were a Christian I wouldn't engage in all that spiritual panhandling.

That being said, "Go engine failure!Go engine failure!Go engine failure!Go engine failure!Go engine failure!Go engine failure!"

Hutch is out of the country? Awesome -- more time for Driscoll to give religiousfolk a bad name.

Are all of his missives this ridiculously self-centered? Or just the ones you post? Does he ever ask people to pray for parishioners with horrible diseases or children in Iraq or anything like that?

What a tool.

Hrm, I should work up some graphs on how often and for whom the Hutch ask for prayers. Coding the later would be a bit of a pain, though.

The vast majority that I've seen are about himself, but some are more interesting than others. I try to only post the good ones - don't want to bore the flock.

But maybe I'll start a comprehensive file and do some analysis of the Prayer Warrior's topics over a longish period of time. Could make for a fun amateur study.

I'm praying that Hutch gets assigned the middle seat between two 400 pounders on day 18 of a month-long all-garlic diet, that the row behind him is occupied by three six year-olds with uncontrollable seat-kicking syndrome, and that the in-flight movie is "Let's Go To Prison".

I pray he gets sat next to a really cool honeymooning gay couple AND the in-flight movie is Let's Go To Prison.

The gay couple in 11 is the pair of 400-pounders in 10. That's my prayer.

Posted by Fnarf | December 4, 2006 6:59 PM

Thee isn't a 400 pound gay in the universe. People over 375 are asexual dynamos.
