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

    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.
