  1. Agree with this article’s view ” “Prayer is not a bad thing, but the minister has the ability to influence (matters) in slightly more earthly ways.”

    I mean, I am not against prayer at all, I support prayerful practices. And we indeed should pray, especially in calamities. But instead of public prayer, the minister should tell his government, his people to keep constantly praying for water, by heart and mind. Not just on and off public prayer events.

    Matthew 6: 5-8: on Prayer

    5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    1. Agree with Hằng and the author of this article.

      One more point. I think this politician-led public prayer at the Western Wall of Jerusalem has a real political motive that the author of this article might have seen but have decided not to mention. That is Trump’s recent proclamation, which greatly disturbs the world and the United Nations and adds much to Israel’s glee, that Jerusalem is capital of Israel.

      A government official at the cabinet level leading a public prayer at the most contested religious site of the world is no spirituality, but wholly anti-spiritual politics.

      1. That’s true! Thanks a Hoành for bringing that up.

        The Israel’s water crisis is not new at all. Prayers can be anytime, anywhere. Why politician-led prayers happening only now? Why it has to be at that contested site? Isn’t it obvious?

        Now that, in the name of environment crisis, climate change or whatever, politicians can just gather public prayers at that site to signal the world that Jerusalem is capital of Israel.
