“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.”II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV
This is a promise from the Lord for us His people. This promise was made originally to the nation of Israel. But through faith in Jesus Christ we have been adopted into God’s family and become His sons and daughters.
This promise stands for us today and where ever we find ourselves can be blessed by the Lord if we will humble ourselves and pray. Prayer is the place where the power of Heaven is released into the earth. Whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
We need to understand the power and authority we have through prayer. When we have a burden for a person, a situation, or an area of the world the Lord is calling us to pray and intercede. The more we show ourselves obedient and faithful in prayer the more the Lord will reveal to us areas that need to be prayed for.
