Will the outcome of the election demonstrate anything about the power of prayer?

    The subject of prayer has baffled me for decades.

    I'll be OK under either antichrist but the grandkids may have an easier row to hoe under a democrat antichrist. Can't say if easier is better.

    Whether Romney or Obama go into office won't really present anything about prayer.

    Neither man are an answer to any American's prayer - no matter whom they may pray to or if they take that "answer to my prayers" as a figure of speech.

    I'm voting for Romney because I fully believe we MUST pass the baton to someone else. Sadly, we are screwed if Obama goes back in and we are potentially screwed if Romney goes in.

    I've got to vote for the better of two poor choices.

    Sure, we are called to pray for our leaders and I do. But the evidence of prayer changing our nation is that prayer - UNHINDERED prayer - is going to have to change the church first.

    And the church has enough moral corruption now to cause our collective prayers not to get passed the roof tops.

    I don't really see it as a democrat verses republican problem. Obama would have done just fine and would have probably easily won a second term in spite of the stunted economy if he wouldn't have started a class war with all of his rehtoric. He promised to bring both parties together, this was the hope and change, but what did he do?? Obama is a good example of what the Antichrist will be, he will promise great unity and then he will turn on the people, just like Obama has.

    I for one do not believe the President has any power to create significant jobs, the best thing a President can do is encourage the people to love one another and see each other as important, not pit one class against another, which is what he is all about. All this "fair share" baloney, the taxes he proposes on the top 1% gains nothing, absolutely nothing, to changing our country's situation. It's a sad agenda.

    You know, I didn't vote for him because of his antichrist record, but scince God put him in office I had hope that all of what he said to get elected he just might do and prove me wrong. I thought wouldn't that be great if he really did bring everyone together and work to make this country united for the common good of all our people. What a let down he has been. He is exactly what his life history declares he is and only an encounter with the living Christ could ever change him. I pray the Lord will witness to his soul that he may have a chance to repent and be saved.

    And before someone tells me that I cannot declare him unsaved, the scriptures declares we will know them by their fruits. True Christians do not deliberately and faithfully oppose the Word of God.
