Sarah Palin needs a LOT of prayer

Here's a video of Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, visiting the Assembly of God church in Wasilla, Alaska, that she grew up in. It must be recent because she says her son Track is soon to go to Iraq, and that's scheduled for September 11, as of today just a week away. She sounds very young here (Lots of "cool" and "you guys"), not quite the same persona we've seen at the Republican Convention, but not inconsistent with it either I hasten to add. Her Christian commitment is made very clear in any case.

It's of the utmost importance that Christians pray for her protection. She's already under attack and it's not going to let up. There is at least one website calling for increased security for her because she's such a threat to the leftist establishment, and that's good but of course the attack she has been going through is fundamentally spiritual. It has reached a pitch even unusual for the left, and it's easy to suspect that it could inspire someone to try to kill her. This is clearly demonic, this is spiritual warfare. Besides praying for her protection, and her family's protection, and McCain's too, we should pray that God would restrain her enemies, interfere with their plans and so on.

And thank Him for letting us have her. We don't deserve this good woman in our political life, but God has had mercy on us in giving her to us.

Sept 5: Friend Z, who has a very popular conservative political blog, has posted a Psalm for Sarah today, as a great example of how to pray for her.
