One doesn’t have to look to hard to realize our country could use a few prayers. I’ve noticed it in my Facebook and Twitter feeds. It seemed to intensify the closer it got to the election.
Now that the election is over hopefully there can be healing from the cuts of nasty political ads. Hopefully those elected go about their tasks with an open mind and a kind heart.
Yes. Our country could really use some prayers. The Bible is full of verses about prayer but one of my favorites is 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.”
One reason I really like this verse is it’s the inspiration for the Casting Crowns song “What If His People Prayed”.
That song is on the first Christian music album I ever heard… and that album lead me to become a fan of contemporary Christian rock and rap music.
What’s your favorite Bible verse that mentions “prayer” or “praying”?
