I Hear Bloc Party Praying




Jesus Christ responds to the questions asked by Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke in their song “The Prayer” from their new album Weekend In The City.



Kele, I love the new album. Not quite as strong as the last album, but I’ll take it. One of My favorite new songs is “The Prayer”. In this song, you ask Me a few questions and I thought I’d take the time to answer your questions in type.


First of all, as soon as your prayer starts, you go straight to the “gimmie, gimmie!”, which is cool and all, I just kinda wish we could talk about how our relationship was going and what you thought of Me before we hit your grocery list, but it’s cool.

Regarding the first verse, which is as follows:

“Lord, give me grace and dancing feet
and the power to impress.
Lord give me grace and dancing feet.
Let me outshine them all.”

I already gave you grace, dancing feet, and the power to impress. Notice that your album debuted in the US at number 12 on the Billboard charts. You think that was all your doing? No way! People wanna hear your new album because of your past power to impress them with your last album. That gift of creativity comes from Me, and you’re using it quite well. You already have My grace, and you already can shake your thang on stage. I answered this prayer way before you even wrote this down.

In regards to your wanting to “outshine them all”… slow down there, rock star! Maybe set your sights on outshining Idlewild or Maximo Park before you get all Oasis-ie on us. Just keep doing your thing, but some humbleness can go a long way.

And regarding your second verse, which is as follows:

"Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
Second best, runner-up?
Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
To want more than is given to you?
Than is given to you?"

Yeah, it’s pretty wrong to crave recognition, rewards, and wanting more. Granted, it’s not really your fault (which could be argued), but as soon as you entered a world broken with sin, it’s pretty normal to crave things which I didn’t originally intend for you to need. The only person you need to be recognized by is Me, the only reward you will ever need is My dying for you, and therefore you really don’t need anything more than what’s been given to you. It’s alright though. You’re screwed up, and I love you anyway. Keep begging for stuff, and even though you don’t need or deserve it, I might throw it down to you anyway. I’m a sucker for when My children beg Me for toys.

Your song chorus is as follows:

"Tonight, make me unstoppable,
and I will charm, I will slice,
I will dazzle them with my wit.
Tonight, make me unstoppable
and I will charm, I will slice,
I will dazzle, I will outshine them all."

Kele, with Me, you are unstoppable. Through Me, you will indeed charm, slice, and dazzle. Through Me, you will outshine the sun. Great song. I love you. Keep those remixes and b-sides coming!

Ah, Jesus, you always know the right things to say to get people to believe in you. It's a shame some still don't.

I hope you don't mind, but I included a link to your blog on my blog. I know, I know, you've repeatedly told people you don't need us to advertise for you, but I figured that I'd test your resolve. Jesus needs followers, right?
