Are Your Prayers for America Being Wasted?

Just a thought:

A few minutes ago I read a post about a prophetic warning to America given by Billy Graham's daughter. As I read through the comments, I was reminded of something I believe the Lord told me back in 2008.

He said that America had been judged and was going to be destroyed from being the great nation it once was. That to pray that the nation be preserved was going against His plans. That from that point on He was going to deal with individuals, and that that was where the prayers were to be focused; not on saving the nation, but on saving the lost of this nation.

America's sins have reached the point where her arrogance, pride, exporting of all kinds of perversions, and the wanton killing of the innocent, has become a stench in the nostrils of God. Just like He destroyed ancient Babylon after they built the Tower of Babel, confusing the tongues and scattering the people, America will never rise to that point of greatness again.

God is going to allow her enemies to rise up and destroy her, bringing her to her knees.

However, in the midst of this, Believers will see Psalm 37 and Psalm 91 played out in their lives.
11 times in Psalm 37, we see where the destruction of the wicked is foretold. Yet the same passages contain three times the promise that "the righteous will inherit the land."

In Psalms 91, we see the promise that no matter what is happening around us, even tho the death toll will be unbelieveably high, God will give His angels charge over His people to protect them and keep them safe.

How are you praying? Are you praying in vain that God will "save America" as a nation? Or are you praying that souls will be saved and turn to Jesus before it is too late? Personally, I'm praying for souls, and standing on His promise that no matter how dark the days ahead will be, that I will be under the "shadow of the Almighty".

Now, I realize that many will disagree...and that's fine. Continue to pray. I'm just saying that for me, I'm to pray for people and no longer for the salvation of the nation.

SIDE NOTE: I originally posted this on Facebook, and almost immediately received a comment from a woman that the Lord has shown her the same thing. "Confirmation."
