A BIBLICAL RESPONSE
As a people we have turned away from God and His Holy Word. Plagues come to society because of the displeasure of God. Rather than having a National Day of Prayer we should be having Days of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer as this is what they used to be called. God does not answer the prayers of the wicked or those who are “hugging sin”. Why would God listen to any of our prayers if we are not turning from our wicked ways? “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14 Look up the history of how the National Day of Prayer began.
