I think we should not assume that Michelle's prayer circles are not sincerely
praying to the Lord God. "Keeping the spirits" clean around Barack" is a typical
Christian intercession prayer, as outlined by those who do intercession, such
as Augusto Perez, whose book on Intercession I just read.
From what I have read, Michelle was raised Christian. Many think Barack
is not a "real" Christian, but things he has said have both supported and
undermined this supposition. Michelle is not the same person as her husband.
Perhaps she really believes in praying for "good spirits", such as good angels,
to surround and protect her husband.
I have read this same supposition elsewhere than Doves, that the prayer
circles she was talking about were not "good" ones. That can only be assumed,
not known. At least at this point!
Keeping it honest; Jesus would ask us to do so.
