Do we have any examples where such prayer demonstrably had any effect on anything?

Is "turning the nation around" even consistent with Christian concepts about these Latter-Day?

I wonder if a more consistent prayer might not be to bring the Second Coming... “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus, come!"?

On the other-hand, is there any reason to believe that anything Man does will alter the course of corruption, evil, wickedness, destruction and redemption that we know is in our near, Latter-Day future? Why would the Lord "turn the nation around"?

On the other other-hand Apostle Packer has recently admonished that we carry on, getting married and having children.

It's all very confusing.

I say watch, therefore, and wait.

the answer to pray will be that obama loses election as it will never turn around as long as he is in office.
