Will praying save our nation?
Our prayers are heard unless of course we are willingly staying in sin. Sin is the transgressing of the Law of Love that God our creator has set in motion for the best results of living that will provide peace, abundant joy and blessings for his children. Sin destroys all of that and thus it is forbidden. It is not like God just wants to set in motion a set of rules like some dictator would do for their own selfish wants. God sets in motion rules/commandments that protect us, help us to stay healthy and safe.
But our prayers should be that God will do whatever it takes to turn the peoples back to Him! Not just save them so they will continue in sin!
Praying is communication with our God and Creator Jesus Christ and the Father. We are calling upon Him to help us overcome, to praise him and thank Him continually for all things good and helpful. To save us when we cannot save ourselves. To provide and protect us. But do you think, God will save someone just because we ask and that person or nation has turned against God? What does the bible say about this?
17 “Your people are saying, ‘The Lord isn’t doing what’s right,’ but it is they who are not doing what’s right. 18 For again I say, when righteous people turn away from their righteous behavior and turn to evil, they will die. 19 But if wicked people turn from their wickedness and do what is just and right, they will live. 20 O people of Israel, you are saying, ‘The Lord isn’t doing what’s right.’ But I judge each of you according to your deeds.”
