The best selling book “A Rhythm of Prayer” has a number of prayers, including one that asks God to help you hate white people. Let’s analyze this prayer because it’s not only wrong on the surface, it’s a rather clever way to get us to embrace the very unbiblical views of Critical Race Theory, racial guilt, and to replace a biblical value of impartiality and oneness in Christ with one of sectarian power dynamics. We will look at the prayer as well as the justification that the author offers for it. It might surprise you to find out that there is a real worldview behind it. It probably won’t surprise you to find out that it’s not consistent with Jesus. Here’s my video on Critical Race Theory with Dr. Neil Shenvi. Please watch it in full before judging it. We are serious about these issues and want to be biblical in how we handle them.
Here’s a link to the prayer in full.
– Please note that Dr. Chanequa, the author of the prayer, is the one who made it freely available online. This is why I feel it’s ok to share the whole thing with you. Dr. Chanequa’s defense of her prayer is here. If you reach out to her, do so with the love of Christ seasoning your words: Click here
