Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Obama's Western Wall Prayer Revealed!

The AP is reporting Barack Hussein "No Middle Name" Obama's Western Wall prayer has been revealed! The written prayer left in a crack in the wall is transcribed here:

In the name of Allah, the infinitely Compassionate and Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of all the worlds.
The Compassionate, the Merciful.
Ruler on the Day of Reckoning.
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.

(Okay, that wasn't really his prayer, but we have to continue to fuel that "Obama is a Muslim" rumour!)
This is the actual prayer, according to the Maariv Daily as reported by the Associated Press:

"Lord—Protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."

I agree. I am disappointed he didn't extend his prayer for others. How about a prayer for our troops? How about a blessing for America?

Maybe he chose to make it a personal prayer for him and his family, which is fine. But I just expected a man who wanted to lead the greatest nation on earth would be more grateful for his freedom & opportunities.

BTW, I changed the first prayer. I just realized I used the complete translation that included the generic (and most inappropriate) English term for the arabic "allah".

Obama GAVE the international press copies of the note BEFORE he went to the WALL. Ma'ariv reported this.
