Despite the Power of Prayer, we Remain Poor and Backward as a 3rd World country

"Prayer is the child's helpless cry to the Father's attentive ear." Philippine Star, Jan. 15, 2015. . . Prayers have been said and still are being said daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly for more than 400 years now in the our poor and backward country. The results thus far is that our country continue to remain poor and backward as a 3rd World country. We Filipinos are still sick and crying as a people; and, we are still sick and crying as a nation. . . Consider in the same Philippine Star today. It reports on the visit of Pope Francis and how this foreigner, the Head of a foreign State have been flooded with interviews with appeals for papal intervention when he is here visiting the Philippines. For my part, as an atheist, I said it before, I say it again: If our system of education works; if our church works; if our government works; indeed, if our values and beliefs make sense at all because they work - at this time, in this already 21st century we Filipinos should have already grown strong with self-respect as a decent people; and, we should have already developed economically strong with dignity as a decent nation!

Poch, I think what you are really saying if that if we all become atheists like you, if we just get rid of all churches, all religious institutions, and if everyone becomes irreligious and godless, our country will become great. It will become economically strong, dignified and decent. But that has been tried before. Nikita Khrushchev even boasted that with their godless workers' paradise, they will bury the West by outworking and out producing them. Needless to say, it was a failed experiment. It was the godless empire that fell and ended up in the ash heap of history. Blessings! Ken Sidadayaw

Ken, how come we Americans ourselves are burying America to death as America is no longer the greatest nation in the world, no longer the land of the free, no longer the home of the brave! Cheers! Poch Suzara

Poch, I don't accept your proctologist's view of America. China will not prosper without the buying power of Americans. There is still American military presence in many nations around the world. If America is indeed declining, I would blame it on the growing secularism. The less people look up to God, the more they will look up to the state to save them. For the left, politics has become their religion. And the bigger the state, the smaller the citizen. Blessings! Ken Sidadayaw
