Prayer is the only thing that will have a significant effect on America’s terrible spiritual and moral condition. Almighty God, who is in control of all earthly authorities, has specifically instructed His people to pray for their governments. Surely, we can pray such a prayer in perfect faith that He will answer and help us. “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2:1-2). God’s Word says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will” (Proverbs 21:1). That goes for presidents and congressmen and governors and mayors and justices, etc. Effectual prayer on the part of God’s people will do far more for the nation than political activity. Forty years of conservative political action has gained what? A vilely immoral, bitterly divided nation. Where are the praying churches? We have a praying church, and I know some others. How about your church?
