7:14 – A Call To Pray For Our Nation

[13] When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, [14] if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. [15] Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. (2 Chronicles 7:13-15 ESV) 
As Christians we are God’s people. As Christians we hold dual citizenship. We know our true home isn’t governed by politicians and that God is sovereign over all. As citizens of another Kingdom currently dwelling on this side of eternity we long for our nation to be healed.

As Christians we understand that ultimately the healing will come in the Kingdom of Christ. But we also recognize that God has established rulers and nations in the here and now to govern and rule. We understand that we, as God’s people, must humble ourselves and pray for this land. We pray for just, wise, righteous leaders. 

[7] But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. (Jeremiah 29:7 ESV)

Like Israel we are exiles – a people far from home. A people called to seek the welfare of this nation while remaining true to the Kingdom of which we belong. In doing so, we believe that the Kingdom of Heaven will touch earth, and the citizens of this land will long for that Kingdom. 

We commit to pray for and seek the welfare of our city, of our nation. That Christ would be exalted and the people would be blessed. 

Join us in prayer for our nation, our elected officials, and our current election and candidates every day at 7:14 morning, evening, or both as we humbly seek the welfare of our nation.
