2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people who are called by my name 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.”
Look at who is to humble themselves, pray, and seek His face. It’s not the world – it’s God’s people! We complain about the state of our nation when it’s God’s people, not the lost, who need to take action. Blind people can’t see.
Though Israel is not a direct representation of the church, this passage does help us understand that God calls for His people to respond in prayer. Furthermore, though God did not promise to heal the USA, we can be sure that He will heal us and our healing will impact where we live.
