How to Pray Scripture

How to Pray Scripture

 

On the National Day of Prayer in the first part of May, as I drove I heard someone on the radio praying for the nation from II Chronicles 7:14 which says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

As I drove, I quoted the scripture with the speaker and was surprised when they left off half way through the scripture dealing with our wicked ways and God’s response if we will do our part.

In order to enjoy God’s blessings, we have to DO what He requires, before we see Him move on our behalf. How can we fulfill His requirements if the person speaking doesn’t tell us what God says to do?

It’s a little like someone giving us a treasure map and says, “X marks the spot.” When we look at it, half the map is torn away. We need to hear and do the whole truth in order to receive the treasure.

In my quiet time this morning, I was drawn to Ezra 9:6-15 and Daniel 9:4-19. Both are powerful prayers because they give a powerful pattern of how to pray for God’s intervention. Click the blue words to be taken to those scriptures.

What do you think? Have you seen God intervene as a result of prayer?

Healing for Our Nation

Healing for Our Nation

Jeremiah in jail

Jeremiah 33:6
Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, I will heal them; I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth.

Jeremiah received this word from the Lord while he was being held in the court of the guard. He told the king they would be hauled off to Babylon. The king didn’t want to hear it so he threw Jeremiah in jail.

God promises to bring healing and restoration, health and a sound mind. He promises to heal the hurts and defects of nations and individuals.

He further promises to reveal Himself and make Himself known in an abundance of contentment with friendship with God. We know God’s truth by divine instruction through true doctrine found in the Bible.

Would this not be a great scripture to pray for our nation? We have gone very far from the knowledge of the one true God. We desperately need His healing and restoration.

Father God, what You do for one,
You’ll do for all.
We bow before You today pleading
for Your merciful hand to bring us
and our nation back into right relationship
with You, that You might receive
the praise, honor, and glory
for this miraculous turnaround.
