CNN’s Chris Cuomo closed his show in late June by saying people do not need God. However, do the “right thing for yourself and your community,” which would make things better for the country,” he instructs.
“You don’t need help from above. It’s within us.”
These kinds of comments are nothing new from Cuomo, who is Catholic.
In 2018, after many deadly shootings in the nation happened, Cuomo slammed those going to God for prayer.
“And prayer? You think leaving it to God is the answer? We pray for strength, pray for wisdom, and resolve, but we clearly don’t want to act on any of those here,” he says, adding, “So what are you praying for?”
Continue to Pray
Cuomo should not give advice on faith. Now, more than ever, we need to seek God and pray for others and our nation. Many times, it seems our prayers are not working. There are and will be times we won’t have the answers so desired.
Yet, the Lord said to His disciples, “You are the salt of the earth,” (Matthew 5:13) and what keeps the body of Christ.”
As most of us are aware of, we’re engaged in a spiritual battle, Cuomo is not our biggest problem.
People don’t recognize how extraordinary prayer is. Praying is one of the unique privileges we have as Christians.
“In those days, when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me (Jeremiah 29:12).”
2 Chronicles 7:14 is a reminder of the power we have as Christians. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
