The courts claim you have no right to pray in government public settings but when a national disaster hits most all our politicians [even the boo God crowd] stand on public property and say we all need to pray for the victims and the situations.
No wonder we have a very confused America. According to scripture below many may very well pray in vain. Do they really expect God whom they do there best to hide and exclude to come out and deliver them in times of trouble only? Certainly we need to pray for the hurting but our greatest need is to truly repent and pray for a genuine revival to sweep across our nation.
Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
Jas 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
