I am praying for my country Pakistan.
Pakistan will progress forever/all the time.

Is there any difference in meaning?

    No, but they both sound strange to me.

    When you say 'all the time', you must have in mind some period of time throughout which the action will be taking place. Which is, apparently, not the case here.

    When you say 'progress forever', it seems to suggest that it will advance, but never quite reach its intended destination... Or some such thing.

    I am not really sure why they both sound off to me.

    Thanks a lot. Could you suggest something more natural sounding?
    Perhaps the addition of "in the future" will make the sentence sound good?
    Pakistan will always progress in the future.
