We are not d only praying nation on earth and God is never nepotistic, leaders should drive that point into their skulls. Prayer without work is futile, prayer remains an unproductive strategy especially when the leaders of a nation willfully exhibit very high level ineptitude.

We have been praying for the leaders for the past 60 yrs and the prayers have not be answered which means the leaders should turn to followers and allow the youth to rule and they should pray for themselves
