Ever since the 9/11 attacks, it seems like the world has gone crazy. These last 8 years have been extra crazy. As a Christian I pray for my country and its leaders regularly, as does my church. I know that sometimes it feels like those prays fall on deaf ears, but they don’t. God hears and He cares. Our actions and attitudes effect how God chooses to move. Our sins, our choices, our decision to turn away from His best as individuals and as a country.
God spelled it out in 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) “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.” IF we will humble ourselves. IF we will pray. IF we will seek His face. IF we will turn from our wicked ways. THEN he will hear from heaven. THEN He will forgive our sins. THEN He will heal our land. WE are His children. WE have been called by His name. WE must repent and pray.
This must happen individually and corporately. This has to happen in the Church of Jesus Christ as a whole, across denominational lines. Chris Tomiln, often called “America’s Worship Leader”, has stepped to the plate to lead our country in Worship Night in America. Chris Tomlin has gathered some friends to help him, Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, Matt Redman, Phil Wickham, Kim Walker-Smith and more.
