Why do people deny that God hears us, when English people sing "God save the Queen!", and she's been there for 60 years?

"God save the Queen" became known as the National Anthem of England from the beginning of the nineteenth century (around the start of the 1800's).

According to Wikipedia's list of the longest-reigning British monarchs, Queen Victoria (June 20th 1837 to January 22nd 1901) and Queen Elizabeth II (February 6th 1952 to beyond the day of this post), are the two longest reigning monarchs in British history. Since the 1800's, when "God save the Queen" became the National Anthem, God has let those two queens reign over a combined 123 years out of 212.

In the Holy Bible, 1 Timothy 2:1-2, you can find: First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, requests, and thanksgivings be offered to God for all people; for kings and all others who are in authority, that we may live a quiet and peaceful life with all reverence toward God and with proper conduct.

Wouldn't the logical conclusion to draw from these facts be that people praying to God for their leaders, and/or singing to God asking Him to keep them safe, actually works?

As a side note, Canada has "God keep our land glorious and free" in its anthem, and its still remained so!

Could you imagine if we had a worldly anthem that had a line in it with something similar to "God keep our world loving, joyful, pure, true, honourable, and free!" Who knows? It could take us a long way in a short time!
