Lord, Heal Our Land

Heal This Land-1

This week I have received several emails sharing a week long prayer revival that Ann Graham Lotz is spear heading.  It is called 7-7-7 (7th month, 7 days, 7th day) and asks for 3 specific prayers for our country:  

1)  that God would restrain, protect and deliver His people from the rampant evil of this world 

2) that God would be revealed and magnified in our lives, our churches, and our world 

3)  that the Holy Spirit would fall on us in a new way calling us to repentance and return to living in faith in God

This "Picture Prayer" is what God laid on my heart as I have pondered this call to pray for our country.  It is from the passage 2 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, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

I hope you will also be encouraged to spend time pondering this call to prayer for our country, inviting your friends to join as well.  And if you want to have a melody to encourage your time of humble prayer, here is a great Americana Gospel song to help.
