2 Chronicles 7:14 (King James Version)

14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves #1, and pray #2, and seek my face #3, and turn from their wicked ways #4; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

So yesterday I stated that there is 4 parts to this scripture. Yesterday I was talking about the church and how they needed to humble themselves. Today I will talk with you about prayer.

This second part of the 4 conditional clauses is Pray. So when will the church finally come together and pray? I was at a local church in my community and we had electoral candidates present. We had come together to pray for our electoral candidates of the local Judicial, local Official, State Elections, Wisdom of our National Officials, Wisdom of our Local Officials, Fiscal Integrity/Responsibility, Safety of our Nation and Communities, Sovereignty of our Nation, Revival in Our Communities, Unity among American Citizens, Unity among the Christian Church, and Returning to Biblical Priniciples. We prayed for the wisdom of God! This was a powerful time!

The guest prayer people who were going to pray from the pulpit were escorted into the church and as we were walking into the church I noticed something. Something quite appalling! Something that has become part of the Church and America. The church had about 8 – 10 people present. I know this church can at least hold 200 people easily. It is sad to say that I have heard many Pastors say and I have said it too, when you call for the people to come and pray it tends to be the smallest gathering. We can have large gatherings when some special guest comes but when you say prayer, many people find other things to do. So where are all the people? Who really believes that prayer works? When the Pastor calls for prayer, there is few and far between people who are willing to come and pray. Where are the Christians that say they are prayer warriors? Where are the other 280+ Pastors of the local area? Where is God’s people? What is going on in America? Have we fallen away? Men and Women of Faith it’s time for you to stand up and pray!

We can not be weaklings and we can not continue to make excuses. We need to change our focus. Church I love you, but you need to rise up and take a stand. America is under great attack by the enemy (Satan). He is a terrible foe and we must rise up and take our place on the wall. I want all those that read this to understand that we are under spiritual attack. Our land is being taken away from us and we are just laying down and letting it happen. We need to rise up together and get away from all the indifferences in denominations and whose church is better than the others. We need to stand up and pray!

You might say I pray on the National Day of Prayer and on the Global Day of Prayer. Well, I am glad you do, but prayer is not about 1 day. Prayer is about everyday and all throughout the day. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing. If we are to move forward and to have God heal our land then we need to pray together.

Jesus said it best in Matthew 18:18-20 18Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Look the writing is in red. Red means that we win… When we follow His Words! If we were to have people agreeing together instead of fighting about which denomination is better than the other, then maybe we can have true fellowship. Maybe we can see God do great things! God never made up denominations they were brought on by man. Denominations is what has killed the agreeing Pastors and Churches. So who has developed this great problem today? Satan has used the Christian man to be against his own brother because of a prayer life or because of singing or even because someone would dare raise their hands. The church today is so divided because of denominations. Why did Satan create this great falling out? Satan knows that if many churches would come together in unity and pray together we would take back America and cause the Gospel to be more prevalent in the entire World.

I am not just trying to belittle denominations but I am wanting others to see what happens when we try to create our own ways and live out our lives with a fence between brothers and sisters in the Lord. Let’s take America back and start laying aside our doctrines and ideologies. Let’s take the Bible and do as it says. Pray! Pray! Pray! Deuteronomy 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? We need unity and prayer together and we will see our America prosperous again!

Be Blessed!
