The Family Research Council is giving its members "prayer targets" surrounding the Supreme Court's consideration of DOMA and Prop 8, asking them to pray that Ted Olson and David Boies "present their arguments in an inept, confusing and unconvincing way" and "fail to gain traction in the minds of the Justices," Good As You reports:"Dear God, we know that we probably don't have the moral high ground or even much of an argument to stand on here, so please make the opposition's lawyers momentarily turn into morons so that we look all right in comparison. No need to kill them off or anything, but maybe some sort of minor brain thing? A peanut allergy acting up? We're flexible. Anyway, that'd be a big help, amen."
Here's the actual text:
May the attorneys defending traditional marriage (see ADF Prayer Guide) be given anointing, clarity, effectiveness, conviction and persuasiveness in presenting their arguments. May traditional marriage prevail in the minds of a strong majority of the justices, and may traditional marriage be reaffirmed as the law of the land (Pr 16:1, 11; 25; 18:17; 21:3; Is 9:7; Mt 19:4-6; 2 Cor 5:11).Being God has got to be awful. The only thing worse than having mean, crazy people talk to you all the time is when their conversation comes with a lot of footnotes.
May those arguing on behalf of same-sex "marriage" present their arguments in an inept, confusing and unconvincing way. May they fail to gain traction in the minds of the Justices. May the right of Californians to amend their state constitution to protect marriage be confirmed by the Court, and may the Defense of Marriage Act be ruled constitutional (Lev 20:all; 1 Sam 2:8-10; 2 Chr 14:11; 20:12-27; Pr 22:28; 24:21; Is 8:18-20; Dan 7:25-27; 2 Cor 2:5).
