    The problem with this type of prayer is that it isolates and teaches us to look after number one.Jesus said "pray for one another and pray for your enemies."I think if as a country we want to be great then our christianity should be as Christ said it is meant to be.We should pray for ourselves and the World because no one country does it by itself. We are inter-connected and dependant on the good will and wishes of each other.What would be better is a national day of prayer just to say thank you to God for everything that we do have.Including our enemies and to ask for blessings which bring peace, love and security in unity and love of God.Mystery Girl.xx
