How my powerful prayers defeated Hillary in '16. An absolute miracle!

Right after 0bummer won re-election, I was despondent. I had prayed sporadically, but wasn't living my best life. Then when the result happened, I decided to clean things up a bit, and become fervent in my prayers. So I said the Rosary every single day for the next four years, without exception. Every day. Took me 20-30 minutes a day. I offered the Rosary as prayer as I requested various things; protection for my family, well-being for friends and those who were sick, for the souls of loved ones. But I always ended by praying for the country, specifically for the 2016 election, that Hillary would lose.


I was FERVENT in my prayers. "Please, God. PLEASE spare the country. PLEASE don't allow the Supreme Court to go nutty left. Please help the unborn, God. Please. You can't possibly allow that evil woman to win. All the hatred and lies and criminal activity by her CANNOT be rewarded, God. PLEASE!!!!"


So all during 2015 and 2016, the media had Trump in trouble. Couldn't win the nomination. About to quit. This new scandal will be the one that does him in. On and on it went. They had him with a 90% chance to lose. Even the day before the election, they had him ten points down. No chance of winning. The exit polls, according to the early evening telecasts, had a huge Hillary win.


Still I kept on praying.


Then the tide suddenly turned. The most unlikely thing happened. From the ashes, Trump emerged the victor. Prayer worked. Fervent strong prayer every single day.


That episode confirmed for me the power of prayer and existence of God for me. God listened and answered. And I suspect a lot more than me were praying just as hard.

So God wanted Trump to be President because you prayed? I guess God must have it out for the USA to have someone that commits all seven deadly sins, right?

- Lust
- Gluttony
- Greed
- Sloth
- Wrath
- Envy
- Pride

Or are you a Satanist?

If not, next time try to pray for someone a little more aligned with God's description of "good"... you know, for the good of the country.

The president displays none of those things. His goal is purely for the benefit of the country, and he's done a tremendous job. I think God knew no other man could have withstood the daily barrage of lies from the left and its media and still accomplished the great things Trump has.

Depends upon what they're praying for. Everyone dies. You don't pray not to eventually die. That's silly.

God helped Trump overcome filthy lies like this. No matter the hate leftwingers display, they cannot overcome.

It will be, indeed, a miracle if President Trump wins another term.

He has everything against him: Extremist Dems, the media, academia, the deep state, and non-citizens who are being allowed to vote in some states. Also, some Republican industrialists do not like him and prefer to make deals with the Dems.

In all fairness, President Trump's abrasive personality does not help his cause, either.

Best wishes!

On this Sunday afternoon, your post struck a poignancy within me.

Firstly, as a multi-generational cradle Catholic who understand & respects the power of prayer, I encourage you to continue in prayer, and with as many family members as possible.

But your logic here, is way off base in my opinion.

"post hoc ergo propter hoc"

I'd suggest following whatever you pray for, with asking for guidance, illumination, and "your will be done". Pray for God's way, not yours. At least that's my take on it.

Yes, God answered the prayers of conservative right wing, in the form of Donald Trump.

Trump is doing Gods work. He saved us from the godless socialist policies of Hillary R. Clinton.

I always pray that way, that God's will be done. But then I put in a little pitch for what I want. But lucky me. Turns out God wanted Trump, too. There is no doubt in my mind God heard this deep earnest prayer from a lot of people and granted it. But one of the things I worried about was that too many Americans had offended God too deeply by abandoning Him, and he would decide we needed to sink to rock bottom first. I begged Jesus to show mercy, even though we probably deserved an immoral tyrants like Hillary. Thankfully, He DID show mercy.

Fair enough in your logic, I suppose.

Apparently I feel bit differently about the Trump situation, than you.
