What if the fate of things were to depend on you? Would you be one of the few that would move God to show His mercy?

Genesis 18:26-33

And the Lord said to [Abraham]: If I find in Sodom fifty just within the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake. 

And Abraham answered, and said: Seeing I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord, whereas I am dust and ashes. What if there be five less than fifty just persons? wilt Thou for five and forty destroy the whole city? 

And He said: I will not destroy it, if I find five and forty. 

And again he said to Him: But if forty be found there, what wilt Thou do? 

He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of forty. 

Lord, saith he, be not angry, I beseech Thee, if I speak: What if thirty shall be found there? 

He answered: I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

Seeing, saith he, I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found there? 

He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. 

I beseech Thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more: What if ten should be found there? 

And He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. 

And the Lord departed, after He had left speaking to Abraham: and Abraham returned to his place.
Makes one ponder: If the conversation were over a city like New York, L.A., or any one of the many cities in the country, would there be enough righteous people to sway God today?

I've often said; If God doesn't punish the US soon (and the world in general), He's gonna have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!
Lord, grant me the grace that I might be counted among the righteous.

Receive all of my prayers, offerings, and suffering for the unrighteous.   Pray

I often wonder the same thing. Then again perhaps He is punishing us and we just haven't realized it yet....
