Devotional National Day of Prayer

2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (NIV)

13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

As a father disciplines the son he delights in, so too does God disciplines us for our good.  He disciplines us so we will prosper in every area of our life.  As a son humbles himself and submits to his father discipline and his father wrath subsides, so also God’s love and grace shines on us again if we humble ourselves,  Not only will He forgive us, but restore us to a better position with Him in our relationship than we had before.  It is the national day of prayer.  Pray for this country to humble itself and return to God and God would heal our land.
