Pastor's Thought (7 Aug 21)
“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.” 2nd Chronicles 7:14.
This passage of Scripture from the OT is for today as well as back then. Our
world needs healing. Our country needs healing. Our denomination needs
healing. God’s promises are the same today, yesterday, and forever.
August is a time where parents are getting their children ready to go back to
school. Teachers are getting their classrooms ready for the students to
return. And then there is football. Many are excited about the teams they pull
for. This is the first time my grandson Jude will be playing. He’s finding out
practice is hard after a summer of leisure.
I wonder if we could stop for a while and focus on doing what 2nd Chronicles
tells us to do. Prayer changes things. What if praying could change the world,
our country, our state, our town, and our denomination? What if praying for
our teachers, our children, our grandchildren helped them to have the best
year they ever had? Or do we think that our prayers aren’t important to God?
God hears us when we pray. Revival can take place. Miracles can happen.
Prayer changes things. Let us make August a month where we seek God’s will
and intercede for our world, our country, our state, our city, and our schools.
