Rick Warren “One World” all faiths prayer for Obama

This is a transcript of Rick Warrens prayer for President Obama, made 20th of January 2009 at the lawn of the White House.

Rick Warren blessed Obama using Islams "Esa" in the same prayer as he used "Jesus".

Almighty God, our father, everything we see and everything we can’t see exists because of you alone. It all comes form you, it all belongs to you, it all exists for your glory. History is your story.

The Scripture tells us, ‘Hear, oh Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one’ and you are the compassionate and merciful one and you are loving to everyone you have made.

Now today we rejoice not only in America’s peaceful transfer of power for the 43rd time, we celebrate a hinge-point of history with the inauguration of our first African American president of the united states.

We are so grateful to live in this land, a land of unequaled possibility, where a a son of an African Immigrant can rise to the highest level of our leadership. And we know today that Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven.

Give to our new president, Barack Obama, the wisdom to lead us with humility, the courage to lead us with integrity, the compassion to lead us with generosity. Bless and protect him, his family, Vice President Biden, the Cabinet and every one of our freely elected leaders.

Help us, oh God, to remember that we are Americans. United not by race or religion or by blood, but to our commitment to freedom and justice for all. When we focus on ourselves, when we fight each other, when we forget you, forgive us.

When we presume that our greatness and our prosperity is ours alone, forgive us. when we fail to treat our fellow human beings and all the earth with the respect that they deserve, forgive us.

And as we face these difficult days ahead, may we have a new birth of clarity in our aims, responsibility in our actions, humility in our approaches and civility in our attitudes—even when we differ.

Help us to share, to serve and to seek the common good of all. May all people of good will today join together to work for a more just, a more healthy and a more prosperous nation and a peaceful planet.

And may we never forget that one day, all nations, all people will stand accountable before You. We now commit our new president and his wife Michelle and his daughters, Malia and Sasha, into your loving care.

I humbly ask this in the name of the one who changed my life—Yeshua, Esa, Jesus, Jesus—who taught us to pray:
Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be they name. They kingdom come, they will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.

This is the first time I have studied the transcript of the prayer Rick Warren used to bless Obama, as a Muslim by birth entered the White House.

There is a lot of stuff in this prayer that will please people of all faiths. It is not challenging to anyone.

 1. Hear, oh Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one’

No Jew will be offended by this. Jesus quoted the Torah, and explained that He and the Father are One. They are singular, One, always in agreement. But in form, Elohim is a plural Hebrew word. God is three in One. God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 2. “and you are the compassionate and merciful one”.


Every Muslim will rejoice, that Warren feels the Bible told Israel this. Because the “merciful One” in not “The great I AM”, but “allah”.

 He is “allah – there is no deity but Him. He is the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible. He is the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. He is “allah”.

Source: The way of the Mahdi

113 of 144 Surahs in the Koran, starts with this name of “allah”: Merciful. All Merciful, and Most Merciful.

Here is Surah 65 in the Koran.

Do you not see that Allah has made subservient to you whatsoever is in the earth and the ships running in the sea by His command? And He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except with His permission; most surely Allah is Compassionate, Merciful to men..

Some more points:

 3. “And we know today that Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven”.

The Pope claims he knows who has made it to heaven. The Pope is infallible when he canonize departed saints. Rick Warren has the same powers. He know “Dr. King is in Heaven”, even shouting, celebrating the outcome of the American election. That is Amazing.

 4.I humbly ask this in the name of the one who changed my life—Yeshua, Esa, Jesus, Jesus—who taught us to pray:

All Muslims must have rejoiced, when Warren acknowledged that Jesus and the Muslim prophet Isa (Esa) is the same man.

  If not so, why are they mentioned in the same prayer?

This is the most shocking to me. I never thought Warren would expose his universalism, by using Esa in his blessings of the Obamas.

Who is Esa?

What is he doing inside a Christian prayer?

To my best knowledge Rick Warren is a double talker.

He do not practice what he preach. We can acknowledge his universalism, by reading this prayer. Warren is a dangerous false teacher of a new “god” who accept lawlessness. Warren use the name of “Jesus” for his own convenience.

The rise of “Chrislam” is going on. Saddelback Church, a member of World Council of Churches (WCC), has taken the lead.

  1. How people like this enter our churches unknown to many who
    sit in the pews. Many Southern Baptist Churches taught his first
    book to members through “Bible Studies”.
    I was given one but did not read it, so I am not sure what it says.
    But to read this prayer which took much thought and cunning to put
    together as a born again Christian is shocking. I am not very wordly but I know I would only pray to the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. The only true and living God.
    It is scarry for America to have such men be leaders of our so called “Christian” nation..
    May God have mercy on our country and people.
    We need to confess our sins, seek His will and be in fellowship with
    Him…Praising His name daily. We do not need such prayers.

    1. Dear Korni.

      Shalom.

      I have read both the main books of Rick Warren, Purpose driven life, and Purpose driven Church. I felt I learned a lot.

      Today, I will read the books one more time, and take a religious perspective on the content. The Pope also run a “Purpose driven Church”. But the Purpose is not to serve God of the Bible, but to use the Church to achieve Political powers, and build the “peaceful Kingdom” without the presence of the true Prince of Peace.

      In Warren’s P.E.A.C.E plan, he wants to build interfaith projects with Islam. After his prayer to ESA, I understand why. The United Nations and Saddleback Church are in agreement, that the vision of the One World governance is at hand.

      We who believe in the Bible, understand that they are preparing for the coming of the final anti-Christ.

  2. Saddleback Church is part of the Church Grow Movement. It means, they do’nt want to offend anybody – it may be Wordly, Muslims or Christian supporters. Therefor they never talk clearly.
    The Church Grow Movement destroys Christianity.

    Willow Creek Church is another one in this movement.

    NB: I have translated the article above into Danish.

    1. Wow, I have never heard of this movement. Interesting. The church in America is really dead! Everywhere I attend, it is just -I dont know, cant explain it. It is almost like attending a conservative-synagogue in a way..

      I wish a huge revival would break out and everyone would know that they know that it IS the Spirit of the Lord.

  3. Funny Scripture says -No one has yet ascended to Heaven but the Son ; and also David died and slept with his fathers.. Dr King and others shouting from Heaven ..what a farce and false doctrine.

    John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

  4. The Bible Says that the spirit returns to the one who made it upon death, and Jesus shows us that people are still conscious after death, either with Abraham or in torment… The Bible CLEARLY Says that our SPIRITS RETURN to the one who made us for ONE OR THE OTHER EXPERIENCE! OUR BODIES, however, WAIT TO RISE! NO ONE has had his/her physical body restored except JESUS; Enoch and Elijah were changed so as not to SEE death; SOME OF US will be changed “in the twinkling of an eye” ALONG WITH THE PREVIOUSLY DEAD and we will ALL RECEIVE OUR NEW BODIES LIKE JESUS…just AS ENOCH AND ELIJAH WILL. THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS! Revelation pictures ALIVE saints–which are consistent with what JESUS SAYS AT THE RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS back to bodily life! WAITING! HELPING GET PRAYERS TO GOD! THAT IS THE PICTURE! THAT IS THE TRUTH. There IS a “cloud of witnesses” IN THE BIBLE. There ARE saints in heaven WAITING FOR THE OTHERS in Revelation. OUR SPIRITS do return to the creator Yehovah/Jahweh! OUR BODIES have NOT RISEN YET! THIS is consistent… Those statements ARE correct, translations into other languages ARE translations into other languages–such as Essa–AND THERE IS MORE TO SAY ABOUT JESUS. That he BROUGHT UP JESUS is enough to OFFEND JEWS. THAT HE BROUGHT UP Israel is enough to OFFEND MUSLIMS! He STILL managed not to say anything to offend CHRISTIANS IN HIS WORDS, but IT MAKES ME REALIZE WHY Catholics would find it so important to Say, “IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT,” BECAUSE THAT…WOULD…OFFEND BOTH NON-CHRISTIAN GROUPS, IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO DO SO WHEN NOT USING THAT “FORMULA”! I SAY KUDOS TO THE CATHOLICS, WO-HOOO… <3+w

  5. It should be noted that Isa/Esa is what hundreds of thousands of Christian Iranians, Central Asians, Turks, converts from Islam, call the same Christ/Messiah that we call Jesus in English, or Yeshua if you are a Messianic Jew. In fact, the name Jesus is a poor rendition of “Iesóus”, the Greek name, which again is a poor rendition of Yeshua. Isa/Esa may be an even poorer rendition of the name, but that is how they are used to refer to Him among the Turkish and Persian people groups, regardless of their faith. If you read the official Catholic cathechisms and doctrinal statements, there is nothing that suggests that the purpose of the Catholic Church is political power. Political INFLUENCE, that is certainly what Christians have, whether Evangelical, Orthodox, or Catholic, and they should use their influence by being prophetic voices in their communities. The authorities feared Jesus because His influence was perceived as a threat to the status quo, the Christians were feared by the Caesars because they believed in a highter authority than that of the Caesar. The Church is, and should always be seen in this way, because no society on Earth will be perfectly like the Kingdom of God.

      My comment:

      If you say that Isa/Esa is the Son of God, equal to the Father, you will be beheaded in Iran, Central Asia and even in parts of Turkey. That is not what the Koran says about Isa/Esa. The desert demon “allah” did not beget a Son.

      My comment:

      What complete non sense.

      The Holy See is a global political power, with Ambassadors in most of the nations on the face of the Earth. There are now 180 ambassadors in the Vatican.

      They do not only have ballroom dances.

      All of them accept the Pope as a political leader, a head of state. This statehood is global. It has its Bishops or priests in almost every village and townships. The Holy See runs Universities, and have a globalized bank.

      The Vatican is an independent statehood. The Pope has diplomatic immunity. A Catholic priest who have raped some altar boys can not be persecuted. He just have to buy a ticket home to Rome. In the political Kingdom of the Pope, He is safe.

      Kings have always bowed down, and accepted the supremacy of the Pope. Before the exodus of the Reformation He controlled Kingdoms, and even armies.

      The Bishop of Nidaros in Norway did not only have his own army. He even minted his own money, in competition with the Danish King.

      When the Reformation came to Norway, these criminals were rounded up and arrested. They had become the largest land owners in Norway. Not only had they stolen the land from the people. They had also robbed them for their salvation.

      My comment:

      Much of the poverty in Catholic Latin America, is fruits of lack of land reforms. The Catholic Church is still the largest land owner, and control the political elite.

      The local Fascists dictators were “good Roman Catholics”, without failure. Their subjects were slaves.

      You must be aware of the Roman Catholic nexus with Fascist dictators in Europe. Not a single reformed Christian nation, elected Fascists to rule them. Almost all Roman Catholic nation have lived, and some still live, under the joke of Fascism.

      No doubt, that the Pope has great political influence.
