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.
