This is Carter Conlon reading to you today from the book of 2 Chronicles chapter 7, and verse 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.”
As a society today we search for answers to the violence in our schools, the addictions in our towns, and the eroding of our homes and our values. I suggest to you that the solution is already in our hands. As the people of God, if we will fold our hands in petition, and raise them in surrender to the will of God; the future of our nation can be changed; it’s that simple.
It’s time to put down the pencils of human strategy. It’s time to stop pointing the finger of blame. It’s time to stop clasping our hands in anguish, and beating our chests in despair.
It’s time to pray!
