Then, if My people.....

.....who are called by My name
will humble themselves 
and pray
and seek My face 
and turn from their wicked ways, 
I will hear from heaven 
and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 
II Chronicles 7:14

"My people".....
.....that's all of those who have accepted Jesus into their hearts.
It's us....CHRISTians!!!

"humble themselves".....
Humble - Having, or showing a modest, or low estimate of one's own importance.

"and pray".....
Prayer - a "sincere desire of the heart".....
.....to beg, supplicate, implore, entreat, beseech, petition

"and turn from their wicked ways"

God tells us in His Word that if we.....
 HIS people.....
 will do these things.....
HE will hear from heaven and will forgive us of our sins
 and will restore our land.

Oh, how desperately are we in need of restoration.....
as individuals and as a nation!!!

I know we've already prayed for all those involved in the horrible tragedy that happened in Boston yesterday!!!  
I just cannot even imagine the sadness this has caused our precious Lord and Savior.

In HIS Most Precious Lve....and with mine, too!!!

Blessings,
Deb

  1. Oh Deb, once again the Lord has you and me on the same track! I thought of the scripture also found II Chronicles 7:14...I agree ..we as a Nation have rejected the path of Holiness to take upon selves the wicked pleasures of ungodliness! Pray without ceasing!
