Answers to Prayer on Political Front

America is in a mess, a fundamental reason being that the vast majority of churches have so blatantly turned from God’s Word. But America is not dead and God still answers prayer. He has commanded people to pray for “all that are in authority…” and some are definitely praying. Following are a few of the many things that just might be answers to prayer: On Jan. 13, the Supreme Court blocked the largest part of Biden’s vaccine mandate. On Jan. 15, Virginia’s new Republican governor, Glenn Yongkin lost no time “restoring trust in the government and power to the people.” On his first day in office he banned critical race theory (CRT) from public schools, rescinded the school mask mandate, promised to give parents more say in the education of their children, rescinded the vaccine mandate for state employees, withdrew from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and took steps to correct a liberalized, soft-on-crime Parole Board. Virginia’s new law-and-order Attorney General Jason Miyares is working in lock-step with the new governor. This new government is a major change in Virginia from its previous leftist regime. On February 15, Ontario Premier Doug Ford made a bold statement against further Covid mandates and for democracy and liberty, which will make it more difficult for Prime Minister Trudeau to continue his tirade against law-abiding citizens who simply want their constitutional liberties to be restored. On February 15, ultra leftist San Francisco voted to recall three of the city’s school board members, a move that was supported by Mayor London Breed. Critics of the board members called for a return to real education. “It’s not about changing the name on a school, it is about helping kids inside the school building read and learn math.” On March 1, the U.S. Senate voted to block a bill enshrining abortion as a federal law. One Democrat, Joe Manchin, joined the Republican senators in this victory. The murderous Biden-backed bill “would have guaranteed legalized abortion ‘without limitations’ and overturned hundreds of state-level pro-life laws.”
