You can pray for the Supreme Court to strike down gay marriage. You can pray the justices will fear the wrath of a vengeful god. You can pray your bigoted little heart out. So that's what Traditional Values Coalition president Andrea Lafferty, who has spent every other option, begs you to do in a letter:
In Washington this Tuesday, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear a landmark case that could redefine and ultmately abolish marriage as we know it. So I am asking you for one "donation" as we gear up to protect marriage here in Washington.
I know that's not a normal request. This isn't a normal time. As you know, the Supreme Court of the United States isn't a legislative body. No amount of lobbying, no amount of protesting short of millions is going to sway the Justices of the court other than sound argument and conscience—and the impact of prayer. ... They need our prayers. Your prayers.
Over the weekend and thru next week, take a moment to lift up this nation and our Supreme Court in prayer. Pray that God will allow them to be open to His word. Pray for wisdom. Pray for fear of the Lord. Pray for the millions who will be impacted by the decision of the Supreme Court. Pray for healing across America. Pray for a restoration of all things to Christ.
Pray for TVC and our mission. Pray to protect marriage.
The letter doesn't end with a prayer, of course. It ends with a "donate here" button. And weirdly, their donation website isn't collecting prayers.
