It is National Prayer Day. It is not worth repeating the hollow and hypocritical nonsense that Trump said today on the occasion.
A theological thought did cross my mind.
If God answers prayers, as many Trump supporters (and many non-supporters) believe, we can assume that a number of those supporters prayed for Trump’s election and for his continuing leadership of America. Those who do faithfully pray for outcomes know that sometimes those prayers appear to be answered and sometimes not. Almost all of those people will admit that how this works, whose prayers are answered and which prayers are answered, is a mystery.
What if Trump’s election and his continuing leadership of America are answers to somebody’s prayers?
Just a thought on this National Prayer Day. As many people, believers and non-believers, pray for this sad madness to end.
