Powerless Prayer

Prayer did nothing to slow Diocletian’s persecution, halt the barbarian invasion of the Western Roman Empire, end the Bubonic Plague, ease the severity of the Spanish Flu, prevent the Holocaust, or cure polio. Prayer will not stop storms, provide material aid to victims, or limit bloodshed.

If you care–or even want to appear to care–stop “saying” you are praying and genuinely do something.

Prayer has no palpable outcome, and it is not a plan or a policy.
