Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Healing Our Land

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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2Chronicles 7:14)

This divine injunction was directed at the children of Israel but it is good advice for us today. Keywords for His people are humility, prayer and repentance. If God is to heal our land then.. in this day after our national election.. those of us who name Christ as Lord must humble ourselves, repent and seek the Lord. It is not up to our president to bring healing.. it is up to us.

Father of all creation, we seek you today and turn from the ways that have separated us from each other. We confess that we have been proud - bring humility to our hearts as we repent of pride dear God. Please cause each of us.. in prayer.. to stand behind our leaders.. at every level.. in government and the body of Christ. We ask for Your miraculous healing to come to our land.

Amen.

  1. Yes and Amen to this prayer. Whether we are happy or not with the new president, he isn't our savior, the Lord is. We are admonished to pray for our leaders and I commit to doing that.
