As we approach this election I would like to say, I have noticed so much strife in our country. I would like to request to all believers a prayer for a time of healing in our country. I have my own political views, but I also love my God and would like to pray for peace.
What a beautiful gesture. Any and all prayers and focused positive energy towards peace is a good thing. Many Many Blessings to you Tammy!!! You are one of the true earth angels making a difference by being the change that you want to happen in this world!!! Good for you!!!
Prayer for the country and its leaders is a command from the Lord.. your reminder is wonderful for all of us the end result we are not dependent on an Elephant or a Donkey we are dependent on the Lamb!! Praise the Lord.
Are you saying you cannot find peace in your heart? Are you saying there is more strife then peace in your country? What is it you are noticing? I don't know where you are from but it sounds pretty sad if strife far outweighs the peace.
Good idea, Tammy!
Happy to pray for healing of the divisiveness in our country.
As long as it's accepted that my vision of my God may not be the same as someone else's vision of my God, or their God/spirit/ascended masters/universal good.
Doesn't make Him/them/it any less valid. Doesn't make my prayer, or anyone else's, any less valid.
Everything is already written. Even the names of the selected few are already decided. Your prayers have no value.
That is your opinion and you are welcome to believe as you so wish, I believe all prayers have value
How about praying for knowledge of what we're supposed to be doing and courage to carry on in life according to God's will for us, then?
Haven't you heard nothing happens without the knowledge of the father?
If Judas prayed to know what he should do, would it change anything? It was pre-ordained that he betray Jesus!
I've read the book, " . . . these things must first take place." Why pray against them?
Pray instead, "Come quickly Lord Jesus!"
Praying for peace can be interpreted in such a way for his quick arrival.
Let peace prevail on Earth now and always!!! Forever and ever AMEN!!! Allelluiah!!!(sorry can't spell) but you get the gist!!!
One of my favorite prayers is the Serinity prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen
Not really. But - which is it? Do you want peace or do you want Jesus to come back and attack the non believers and force them to their knees?
Mark, Since I am a believer, praying for peace and the Lord's coming are one and the same...but If you are not a believer maybe you could just hope for a better tomorrow and reflect that through your own daily life...I am not trying to argue with or judge anyone, I want to see a country less divided and more peaceful...
But "The Lord's coming" has some negative connotations does it not? And - no offense - but have you considered seeing a medical professional? You think praying will do something and you think "The Lord" is coming back? I assume you mean you think the dead gay guy is going to come back to life.
If you do not believe why criticize Jesus came He did not come to condemn the world but to save it... Thank you Jesus
Jesus came to sow dissension, to turn father against son...
Because your war mongering threats are what cause much of the division in the first place. The self righteous call to prayer merely reinforces the division.
Why thank Jesus for all this conflict?
"Let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.
Let there be Peace on Earth the Peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father, Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my Brother, in perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now.
With every step I take let this be my solemn vow:
To take each moment
and live each moment
in Peace Eternally.
Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me."
My country isn't having an election. I think you were looking for all US Christians, not actually all believers. Good luck with the US election. I've heard from friends how brutal and overwhelming they can be. I lived in the US awhile during an election year Bush was running. Pretty crazy.

Believers believe that God knows everything. Then why many believers pray to God loudly, shouting and many times on microphone?

Does praying for peace help?Every since I was a child attending Catholic school I was taught to pray for peace and now as an adult I hear everyone call for prayers to end the violence and killing in the world. Do you think praying for peace helps?

Can you really change God's mind? If yes, then what does that say about God? If not, then why do it? And why ask others to pray for you or for someone who is perceived to be in need of prayer? I have asked this question to many religious people because I've never understood the purpose of things...
