“If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.”
Prayer is a vital part in the life of a believer and a child of God. It is the means by which we have communication with the Father. Looking at this verse of scripture, we see that the Lord appears to Solomon telling him he has heard his prayer. He tells Solomon that He has chosen the people of Israel and the place in Jerusalem for a house of sacrifice. It is in the fourteenth verse, that God is speaking to Israel in the ears of Solomon, telling him how they must call upon Him in Pharrell.When they do, He will hear from Heaven and heal their land. How must we read this scripture today? As the people, the Children of God, we would be wise to hear the word from God to Solomon, let us call out to Him, for He will hear our prayer.When we turn to Him in reverence and fear, He will hear from Heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land. I encourage you to seek the Lord in your life as we must seek Him as the church. Only He can heal our land and direct our life.
