Prayer For Iran Iraq Korea

Can the issues we have with Iran and Iraq and even Korea be solved through prayer? Or only through war? Why can't we do things God's way (prayer and fasting) instead of always going to war?

Moderator - Sometimes God's answer to prayer and fasting is war. However, in this case it is questionable.

SWC_You, no doubt have been in contact with Holy Ghost, Good for you!

Please don't misunderstand what I'm saying. Can you pray for a remnant to be saved out of Iraq, Iran, Korea, etc. YES, Praying for a remnant to be saved out of these countries is much different than prayer for peace, and end a war that God is using to fulfill His purpose and prophecy.God always saved a remnant from being destroyed. When God used Babylon other countries, etc. to bring (His) Judgment on Israel (His people)He saved some, those who were exiled to Babylon, then later returned to rebuild.

Please don't tell me that the people in Israel were not praying that God would stop the army coming from Babylon to destroy them. (God did not answer those prayers because it was His judgment on them) because of their continued sin of idol worship, and their failure to keep the sabbatical laws concerning the land. A remnant was saved and they were exiled for 70 years (Jeremiah 25:11,12)

I agree with the moderator, sometimes God's answer is war. When Israel was a theocracy, God led them through war many times. Sometimes God himself sent Angels to slay the enemies of Israel. If Christians ONLY prayed and fasted, we'd have been wiped off the earth long ago. Granted, judgement would have taken place and heaven established already, but for the sake of saving more people, we go on.

We need to pray for the wisdom needed to avoid war, the conscience to choose to avoid it, the compassion to understand and meet the needs of our fellow beings, and kindness to love them, though they be different from us.

Once we (and by that I especially mean our leaders) understand that all human beings are of worth, not only in God's sight, but in our own as well, war will no longer be necessary.

Indeed, it'll be unthinkable.

God will use all countries for His eternal purpose so that His prophecy will be fulfilled concerning His Son Jesus Christ. You can pray all you want, but if it is God's will, sorry won't happen.The same way God used Babylon, Assyria, Medes and Greece, Roman, Egypt, USA, UK, Iraq, Iran, Korea, etc. And, yes God will use the EU for His purpose also,to fulfill His prophecy found in His written word.

notlaw_Thats NOT for us to decide,
Many of the Lost People in those Countries will be saved before its ALL over...
Do you know which ones?
If not, I would leave it alone and IN Gods hands!
I asked God once when i was a littleboy,
Why cant i move this MT. Father?
Because, you would kill those who have yet to Come too me!
I didn't hear this with my ears, But with my Heart, I've never heard the Voice of God,Yet!

Duane_Dudley_Martin, my solution is not to change the course of human history.. It only provides an option of an interim solution to a strategic problem.

Deterrence is a useless option when you are dealing with Islamic externalist as they dont care about the loss of their own lives, friends, families or culture.

Culture eradication is a sound proven God sectioned tactic used when an enemy was defeated and decedents could come back and pose problems to Israel at a later time.

We should always come to God in prayer and fasting for all things, especially the nations. Doesn't meant what is in God's will to happen, no matter how bad, it will happen. It is a hard concept for some people that war would be part of God's plan. But in Ecc. 3:8 there is a time for war and for peace. God's will is to bring about the end to sin in the world. We should pray for God's perfect will.

Sometimes God will tell you to go and kick a leg. Understand? I wonder sometimes if people are not separating Jesus as one and God as one. Man I hope that this is not the case. To know God you must know Jesus. And to know Jesus you must know God. Jesus, will surprise you, God is Jesus, He will surprise you. Jesus God, holy love, hates the sin in man, will send sinners to hell.

DDM ... Governments are people, and people vote them in and allow them to act, and die for them
From what you say, Hitler was a robot, and Bush, etc
If they are robots, why not me?
And yopu say "Pray for the people? YES! .. Believe me I CRY a many nights Knowing whats coming upon them & many other Nations!"
You say the nations are people ... if the nation is a robot, so are it's people .
Quite simple
Like much of what you say.

notlaw99_Then one would be trying to CHANGE the Course of Man God has chosen in the Bible.
That would be wrong...
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 5/19/08

Donna, How many "World day of prayer for peace" have there been? Many,many!Did it make a difference? NO! Contrary to fundamentalist thinking satan is the "god of this world" God is not choreographing the wars and troubles. Not untill the "Kingdom" is fully established with Christ on the throne will He be in control! It's in the scriptures!
---1st_cliff on 5/19/08

The solution is just a co-opt key turn away using 72 Trident II Mark 5Ds with full packages, salted with Cobalt 60 Iodide and just enough bacon grease defile the area under Islam keeping the country above a 1000 rads/hr for the half life of the salting agent.

If you take Iran out of the political equation for 57 years or so you will not have problems with Korea. The object is not to occupy Iran, just keep it uninhabitable and unexploitable for a protracted period.

Alan_I was talking about Govs. being put in place, so all can be fulfilled!
NOT reg. people being MINDless zombies,
Are you "that bitter?"
To where you'll blind yourself because of What or How someone says something!

IF you can't understand the SIMPLE things, HOW can understand the Word of God?
From most of the replies I've seen of yours,
Your neck and Neck W/frances008!
Well, NOT that bad.
This IS a Race, Just ASK Saul/Paul!
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 5/19/08

Do you think that "IF" Europe, U.S & Russia JUST Prayed & Fasted?
Germany & Japan Would have been GOOD Guy's & NOT have TAKEN over the World back then?Right!
Remember, These people "NOW" days, DON'T Love OR BELIEVE in the GOD WE/you DO, OR that GOD has a SON Named Jesus(Yahshua).
PRAYER WON'T change The things GOD has SET in a CERTAIN ORDER to Fulfill HIS WILL!

I'm not sure I want to be a chess piece ... a puppet, a robot, a non-person.
Can a chess-piece love? Can it beleive, have faith?

Hi, I wish someone would reply to this blog, guess I'm gonna have to start lol :D I don't have any great answers for the question but it is a very good question. Sad that we're in this situation though.
---Mary on 5/16/08

God is in control and all the chess pieces are being played & put in all the right places, So ALL that is written can be fulfilled.
"IF" God IS IN Control(I believe he is), HOW can prayer change the things that God has set in a certain order from the Beginning?

DON'T you want ALL things to be fulfilled, So we can start living as its written in the Bible?
Pray for the people? YES!
Believe me I CRY a many nights Knowing whats coming upon them & many other Nations!

There will always be wars, earthquakes, and other disasters, in the world because of SIN. GOD allows it to flourish for reasons I'm constantly learning about.

Yes, I believe that praying is the best answer to these problems. However, sometimes a nation's leadership is so "blinded", and "stubborn", that war must be used to bring their nation under control. Until Jesus Christ returns, wars will be occurring.
