Do you ever get a verse stuck in your head? One that’s on your mind constantly and you just can’t get away from it? Earlier this year, 2 Chronicles 7:14 was the verse that was stuck in my head. I just couldn’t escape it. For weeks, it was at the forefront of my mind. Here’s what it says:
“if my people who are called by my name 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.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (ESV)
I encourage you to read through that once more, this time a little more slowly. Linger on each phrase. Breathe at each comma. What is the Holy Spirit saying to you through this verse?
Today, I want to pray this verse together. You are welcome to join me and/or pray as the Holy Spirit leads you. I believe that as we individually repent, turn from our sins, and seek God’s face, the miraculous can happen in our communities, cities, and beyond! Let’s pray for our nation today!
Lord, thank you for calling me your child and inviting me into your family. I humble myself before you, laying aside my pride, my opinions, and my preferences and I choose to seek your face. I repent for my sins, those places in my life where I have fallen short of your perfect will. Thank you for your forgiveness that you extend to me. I pray for your healing touch in my life. Reveal any area that is not fully submitted to you and give me the courage to trust you more deeply. Thank you for your presence, your grace, and your love. Amen!
