Prayers for Glenn Beck from South Carolina

People are praying for Glenn Beck here in South Carolina.

At least the ones who belong to his 9/12 Project,

the political group launched on his television show in March of 2009, “to bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001 … we were not obsessed with red states, blue states or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the values and principles of the greatest nation ever created.”

9/12 represents the date following the attacks on September 11, 2001, and the 9 Principles and 12 Values that Mister Beck says represent the principles and values of the nation’s Founding Fathers

While started on the Fox cable news network, the 9/12 Project defines itself as “a spontaneous groundswell of freedom loving, God-fearing Americans, who were concerned that Washington is not governing by the Constitution, nor listening to ‘We the People.’ Like wildfire, 9/12 Projects have lit up our Republic with hundreds of independent 9-12 groups across the country. The 9/12 Project is uniting Americans of all economic and political persuasions, race and creed to protect the Principles and Values that make America the greatest nation ever created.”

Mr. Beck’s “grassroots effort” is quite popular in South Carolina, the Bible-toting, right-wing firewall of Republican primary politics.  And not surprisingly, a member of one of the local chapters wrote the following prayer thanking God for divinely inspired Glenn Beck.

The 9/12 Project SC Prayer

Let us pray…

Dear Father, God…

Thank you for thy bounty!  Thank you for America, the greatest country ever to have graced thy planet, Earth.  Thank you for placing us here to benefit from your goodness.

Thank you for all those thoughtful men, whom we call Our Founding Fathers; those men who have taught us your way; those men who gave us the principles and the values on which American greatness has been built.

But now, Father, too many of us have strayed; too many have forgotten; too many have fallen asleep; too many have ceased to follow the lessons that we have learned.

Bless us, Father, as we gather in a noble task; to be reawakened; to march forward in your name; to devise a way to help our fellow Americans to be renewed.

You have sent us an unlikely mentor; a radio personality, who has the capacity to reach millions; who, through your divine guidance, has advanced Nine Great Principles and Twelve Timeless Values.

We ask you, Father, to bless him; to make his voice heard, on the air and through us, so that we may, by word and example, both to talk and to walk those principles and values, so that we might help America to become re-energized, re-nourished and renewed to our greater days.

We ask you, Father, to bless this movement, “We Surround Them,” not so that we may defeat those who have strayed but rather that we may fold them back into our midst; to make them again the Americans in the America envisioned and initiated, in your name, by our Founding Fathers.

Please, Father, grant us the grace, the faith and the forbearance to continue your work here on Earth for a better America and for a better relationship with you.

In thy name, Amen!

Although, and perhaps because, I am not a true believer in the gospel according to Glenn Beck, I offer this alternative orison to the Creator of all life.

Prayer for the Cultural Crusader

Our Father,

which art in heaven,

fuck,

fuck,

fuck,

Glenn Beck

forever.

We acknowledge it thy goodness

that we were not delivered over as a prey unto him;

beseeching thee still to continue such thy mercies towards us,

that all the world may know thou art our Savior and mighty Deliverer;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

    A prayer with the f-word used not once but 3 times? You are dangerous! Blasphemy!

    I wanted to check out the Tea Party to see what it was all about and what do I see? Glen Beck and his F-bomb “prayer”? If the Tea Party is associated with this premise at all then it is my opinion that your folks are nothing short of dangerous. I have no use for Glen Beck, Nancy Grace or Rush Limbaugh or any of those loudmouths, and if the Tea Party stands with them, I think you folks are barking up the wrong tree. Granted, a loud voice will be heard the best, but when it associates the Good Lord with the F-bomb, I think I will steer clear of you folks.
