2 Chronicles 7:14

“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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

This weekend, there were two prayer events held in Washington D.C. Both were livestreamed across the nation and the world. For those of us who participated in them, either by being there in person or on the web, we heard several speakers and of course, 2 Chronicles 7:14 was mentioned a lot. Both were powerful prayer events… but now what? Do we just continue on with our lives, business as usual and expect God to act?

Let’s see what those words mean to us who want to see our land healed:

“IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME”

The Lord is talking to us, His people, the people of the Book. He’s not talking to those who don’t believe, they are not under the same mandate.

“WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES”

That may involve fasting, getting down on our knees, and acknowledging our need for God.ย 

“AND PRAY”

We talk to the Lord in our own words.

“AND SEEK MY FACE”

Spend time in His word, seek His will, His ways.

“AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS”

We actually have to do something. We must examine our lives and get the dirt and filth out of it. We Must Change Our Behavior.

“THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN”

God will actually listen to us.

“AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN”

He will make us clean again.

“AND HEAL THEIR LAND”

That is what we are praying for. An end to strife, division, Covid, economic disaster, corrupt politicians…etc.

If we want Him to do His part, we must first do ours…and not just on one day!

  1. So good!! Thank you! …not just for one day – this is a lifetime commitment!!

    The events this weekend were sobering! I especially loved the trumpets, the thunder, and the calls to return, repent, and revive our relationship/commitment to the Lord God Almighty! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Powerful reminder, Valerie! My husband and I watched and listened to both of the prayer events in DC. We were moved to tears at the heartfelt repentance, prayer and scripture readings. But you are right, it has to continue for more than just one day. Lord Jesus, burn in our hearts to seek you, in all humility, by your Spirit and the truth of Your Word. Bring us to our knees in prayer again and again. That your kingdom will come and your will be done!

  3. God is willing to heal and restore but we must be willing to heed and repent.
    Thank you for this reminder.

    We have a role to play in our healing process. God is the healer and restorer but we must be willing to surrender all to Him. God bless you, Valerie.

    Be blessed. ๐Ÿงก
