Power of Prayer
Many of you are convinced of the power of prayer, of asking God for help in a particular crisis.
I don’t know how often your prayers are successful but in Australia we have evidence of a complete lack of success.
Our Prime Minister prays. He believes it will help.
He was asked last year to make plans for the forthcoming fire season because there was every indication that it was going to be extremely bad.
He ignored the advice.
Presumably he relied on prayer because he did not do anything to prepare for predicted fires.
The fires have been horrendous.
God ignored him. The rest of us should similarly be ignoring him and getting a more suitable person for the job.
