    will or would

    I have watched the television and I have often heard the following sentences


    I pray that God will help him

    I pray that God would help him


    I assume both are correct. Am I right?

    Re: will or would

    Are you sure that the speakers did not actually say:

    I pray that God will help him

    I prayed that God would help him

    I must have misheard the speakers. Thank you for the correction.
