Heal the Land

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

God gives us the stipulations necessary for a nation to experience His blessing. We must turn to Him, pray, and stop doing wickedness. In practical terms, instead of pushing our agendas, we must make the Lord our number one priority, others second, and ourselves last. Easier said than done; we can’t have a healthy nation if we spend every day doing whatever we want, not considering God or others.

According to the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31), the Lord desires us to love Him with our entire being: heart, mind, soul, and body. Then, He wants us to love others as we love ourselves. Only when we get our priorities straight with God will He shower His blessing upon our nation and heal the division that currently exists. If we love God and others well, unity will follow.

The left versus right comes from the English parliament, when the different parties sat on opposite sides of the room. We need both sides. Like in marriage, Ron and I have many different opinions, but we’ve learned that by putting God first and then each other second, we find the middle ground and discover the best path for us to take. Together, we make better decisions. Loving God and others will help us find the middle ground in our country, bringing unity back to a divided nation. Pray, seek, and turn to the Lord; God promises He’ll heal our land if we do.


God promises to heal our land if we pray, seek Him, and turn from our wickedness.


Lord, thank You for hearing our prayer when we seek You.  Help us see our wickedness and turn from it so You will heal our land. We pray for our nation that You will help us cross the aisle and find the middle ground we need to become unified once again.
