The Function of Heartfelt/Exploratory Prayer

Do you believe the fate of your country depends on whether the political leaders look to God for guidance?  Why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1064).

It is my opinion that political leaders need to engage in a good measure of heartfelt/exploratory prayer--heartfelt for such is desperately honest and exploratory for this minimizes prideful assumptions and facilitates openness to elemental causes and forces at work. It encourages riveting and impartial visualization of the practical consequences of policies including the impact upon nature and persons.  Heartfelt and exploratory prayer tends to quiet the strident imperatives of idolization and ideological dogmatism.  By definition, such prayer testifies to the need for divine guidance and assistance in human planning and implementation.  Like Solomon, officials thus reach beyond themselves for wisdom augmentation and political bombast attenuation.
