This song is very popular lately, the most requested song on the radio station I listen to.
Personally, I think it is giving the wrong message. The first time I heard this song I thought it was kind of funny but after several listenings I have to think this really is not the kind of message we should be passing out to anyone.
I found a definition of Prayer as
there are different forms of prayer such as petitionary prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, and worship/praise. Prayer may be directed towards a deity, spirit, deceased person, or lofty idea, for the purpose of worshiping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance, confessing sins or to express one’s thoughts and emotions. Thus, people pray for many reasons such as personal benefit or for the sake of others.
The song seems to fit the definition, I have a hard time with people praying for harm to others, when everything I’d been taught in church is to pray for self-help, good things for others, and give your thanks/worship to your God.
And seriously, would whatever God you follow listen to you pray for harm to someone, to actully let it happen? Some say this is what the Muslim/Islam Allah allows, others say no God would allow it.
What do you think?
