If My People - 3

I had intended to draw a line under this post title, but on going to bed last night I asked the Lord how Christians should pray for the ‘State of the Nation.’

I didn’t necessarily expect an instant reply, but immediately I felt he said ‘pray that Christians should wake up!’

This was as I was slipping under the duvet, so it goes without saying that I was awake for quite a while.

I took this reply to mean that we - and I include myself in this - need to:

  • Wake up to what is happening in our nation and the world.
  • Wake up and take notice of the spiritual battle that is raging
  • Wake up and listen to how God sees this from His perspective
  • Wake up and 'stir the gift within' us
  • Wake up and wait upon God for our individual response
  • Wake up and pray as a priority
This is not to ‘tell,’ but to share what I believe I heard. This may well not be for everyone, but if I am acting in obedience, then surely this must be for at least one person.

“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 verse was about a spiritual principle for God's people collectively when it was written and I believe it is a principle that will always worke when it is applied. I believe it is a warning to God's people in the world today and it will work if we are willing to humble ourselves and pray and seek his face, He will hear our prayers in Heaven and forgive our sins and heal our land. However, if we as God's people don't respond as he prescribes America will continue down its sinsick path toward self-destruction.
