I have prayed that same prayer thousands of times, and I have to confess, I don't get it. God was willing to save Sodom & Gomorah for only 10 righteous souls, and yet we had millions of evangelical & fundamental Christians praying for different results, mainly to throw 0bama out of office. Instead 0bama wins (granted, there was cheating although I wish God had thwarted that as well) and even more so, the Repubs got slaughtered for the most part, in federal & state elections. And now the most evil vile socialist bastards like commie pig-in-chief 0bama are rewarded with power & prosperity and pretty much a near dictatorship. I really don't understand it.
In the end days, God will withdraw His Protection and Spirit and the faithful will live on faith alone. The closer that time gets, the more violence and evil will prevail. God is tiring of lukewarm Christians and the showdown will sift the wheat from the chaff with lives on the line.
We can not know the mind of God.
He has different priorities than we do.
Trouble brought me to God. Have faith, work for the good.
