Prayer is worthless without works

Many times, I hear Christian believers say, “Oh, just pray about it.” In today’s world, we see much strife, stress, drugs, abuse, crime, corruption, human trafficking, etc. This behavior is growing exponentially,  along with people giving up on learning, and actually joining the wrong mix.

When you mix today’s problems with the lack of learning, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand society has major problems.

Christian friends prayer is worthless without works. You can pray all day in the middle of a desert, “Dear Lord, please send me food.” There is a great chance you will die of starvation. The same goes for society. If we sit idle, without rising up, to counter the trend of degradation, society as we know it will die too.

James 2: 14-17 : 14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
