How dare Political Correctness or Corruptness, take away the Bible Teaching from any Military Branch!

The Bible has a Soldier's Prayer and here it is:

Psalm 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength,

                      Which TEACHETH my hands to WAR,

                       And my fingers to FIGHT:

            144:2 My goodness, and my fortress;

                      My high tower, and my deliverer;

                       My shield, and He in Whom I TRUST;

                       Who subdueth my People under me.

("my People": A special reading called Sevir and some codices, with Aramaic and Syrian, read "peoples")    

             144:3 LORD, what is a man that Thou takest knowledge of him!

             144:4 Man is like to vanity:

                       His days are as a shadow passeth away.

              144:5 Bow Thy heavens, O' LORD, and come down:

                         Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

              144:6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them:

                        Shoot out Thine arrows, and destroy them.

               144:7 Send Thine hand from above:

                          Rid me , and deliver me out of great waters,

                          From the hand of strange children;

                 144:8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity,

                            And their right hand is a right hand of FALSEHOOD.

                 144:9 I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God:

                           upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praise
                           unto Thee.

                  144:10 It is He That giveth SALVATION unto king

                               Who delivereth David His servant from the hurtful sword.

                  144:11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children,

                               Whose mouth speaketh vanity, And their right                           
                               hand is a right hand of falsehood.

                  144:12 That our sons may be plants grown up in their youth;

                               That our daughters may be as corner stones, polished 

                                after the similitude of a palace:

                   144:13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store:

                                That our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands

                                in our streets.

                   144:14 That our oxen may be strong to labour;

                                That there be NO BREAKING IN, nor going out:

                   144:15 HAPPY is that PEOPLE, that is in such a case:

                                Yea, HAPPY is that People , whose God is the LORD.

For God has a mighty army, and a mighty Military of a Free People, and because of that "We the People" are Blessed because our God is the LORD Jesus Christ, and He has given us a strong Military.

Let's not let some in government take that away; for along with that goes not only our Blessings, but also our Freedom!

I ask:

"Who would pass down such orders?"     

In Christ,

Is this rhetoric, or do you actually have some policy or story you are talking about?

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

The government has forced the Marines from being allowed the military prayers!

This violates the FIRST AMENDMENT, freedom of religion!

I think it is an atrocity, that ever other religion is free to express their religious belief, EXCEPT Christianity!

People of the Christian Faith need to stand up against this VIOLATION of the Constitution!

If someone is of another persuasion, then they don't have to listen; just as we don't have to listen to their expression of faith.

Psalms 144, is the Warriors Prayers, which asks God to give their hands the strength to overcome the enemy!

Meaning a soldier who protects his Country is legit in the eyes of God!

I get tired of stupid people who put guilt trips on the American Soldiers just for them doing their job!

God Bless, the American Soldier!

In Christ,

Here's a clue (since you appear to need one): Not all soldiers are "Christian". The government cannot 'establish' one faith over another.


Now here's a hint: Any soldiers that want to pray should, like Jesus told us, "pray in secret, in your closet". Just like all civilians should.


You're welcome.

No prayers from Jesus blessing wars! And that tells me all I need to know!
