The following verse gave me a “point to ponder.”
“Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.” – Isaiah 48:18
This verse (God speaking to Israel in the Bible), could be analogous to God speaking to America today. This plaintive plea assures us that if we listen to and obey God’s commandments our peace will be plenteous “like the waves of the sea.”
“Pray for Peace?” Sorry, it won’t work until we get back to God’s Word and honor the God who made the USA great in the first place.
Here is the context of that verse:
17: Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.
18 Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
19 Your descendants also would have been like the sand, And the offspring of your body like the grains of sand; His name would not have been cut off Nor destroyed from before Me.”
