In Why Does God Allow Bad Things To Happen 1, we established that man; as in male and female, were created to rule over the earth. So everything that happens on earth is because of something we as “man” have done and do.
So all the bad things – world war 1 and 2, slavery of African people; genocide of American Indians; civil wars for power and resources; economic poverty of resource rich populations… as much as we can try and blame God, these are all man made catastrophes.
Today catastrophe is on our screens almost daily. There is something we can do to make God intervene.
Prayer is the tool that makes God intervene on earth. In the bible there’s countless witnesses of prayer changing the course of events. God himself says this…
“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land“. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
In our own lives prayer changes things because God said he is busy making a way where there is no way.
On a nation level, we as the people of that nation can pray and see our nation changed; because God said that’s what He expects us to do.
