Oklahoman Governor Kevin Stitt declared today to be a day of prayer and fasting in light of the rising number of coronavirus cases to be hitting his state. Since March, the state of 4 million people have had a little over 200,000 cases and 1,800 death, and are one of the few states not to have a mask mandate for the general populace.
His prayer wasn’t geared just towards those whose God actually exists and is capable of answering prayer, but rather the professing Christian offered up a sickly sludge of unbiblical nonsense when he encouraged “Oklahomans of all faiths and religious backgrounds to join together” in prayer, which is essentially an invitation to drink more damnation upon themselves.
The proclamation read:
Whereas Oklahomans have always turned to prayer to guide us through trials and seasons of uncertainty, and
Whereas I ask Oklahomans of all faiths and religious backgrounds to join together with me in prayer and fasting to continue to ask God to heal those who are sick, comfort those who are hurting, and provide renewed strength and wisdom to all who are managing the effects of COVID-19
Unlike other more liberal Governors, Still has not made any effort to shut done churches where the majority of the praying people will be, but did note that they should use health and safety precautions:
Whereas churches and faith communities have an incredible opportunity during this season to provide hope to Oklahomans who are struggling as we close a year that has been mentally, emotionally and physically draining. It’s important that we continue to find safe ways to gather as we all do our part to protect our families, neighbors and communities from this virus.
Whereas, when we unit in prayer, we are reminded that there is no burden too heavy for God to lift or for this state to bear with His help. 2 Chronicles 7:14 proclaims that, ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
While the day of fasting and prayer may appeal to some Christians looking for a government that represents them, Kevin Stitt has been sharply criticized by Christians in the state for refusing to pass any meaningful anti-abortion legislation, such as Senate Bill 13, despite having supermajorities in the House and Senate.
