No. You do not get to pretend what the real narrative is. It is not that people decry the power of prayer. It is that many political groups, including Christians, refuse to pass any commonsense gun laws and THEN offer prayers when someone shoots a bunch of people. The world may think the things of God are utter foolishness but the flesh of hypocrisy? They have no problem spotting that.
The bottom line here is that there is real persecution of our brothers and sisters spanning this globe. Christians are martyred every day for refusing to denounce Jesus. That persecution however is not occurring in America. What is happening is there is a group of radical apostates who believe in dominionism. They believe in conquering this country for Christ by imposing their faith and beliefs on the lost. They do not care how they accomplish it. they have cheated to accomplish it. they have schemed and partnered with the devil to do so. They have abandoned the gospel and the Great Commission to do so. By doing so they create a church generation that constantly views themselves as the victim. Everything has become an affront. They have become the snowflakes they abhor. Satan has convinced them that the lost are their true enemy. That they are the cause of all sin and grief in this country. That they have violated some fictional covenant and are luring judgment to this land. That if they would just behave better then God will stay His wrath.
God is coming to judge all nations and none will be spared but will He find faith on earth? In Nigeria He will find Agnes still praising His name despite knowing pain, torture and imprisonment. He will find that pastor in India, preaching underground despite direct threats to his very existence. Then He will cast His gaze upon this country. Many will be bragging about how they belonged to the Liberty Council or the Family Foundation. Others will boast about their voting record of casting ballots for Donald Trump twice and a Mormon in 2012, all for Jesus! Many will regale Him with their collective suffering of never being allowed to have the famous Peach Cobbler at Metzger's Bar and Butchery but that they persevered. They will say Lord Lord, did we not pass glorious legislation in your name? He will say, away from me for I never knew you.
