The Power of Prayer

Does God's ancient promise to hear our prayers and heal our land still hold today? Haven’t times changed? Can we really embrace this promise now in New Testament times?

2 Chronicles 7:14 presents a wonderful, inspiring promise. God made that promise just after Solomon’s inauguration of Israel’s first Temple. But does that ancient promise still hold today? Haven’t times changed? Can we really embrace this promise now in New Testament times?


The Bible teaches that the followers of Jesus are the “people of God” (1 Peter, Chapter 2). It also teaches that the scriptures from the Old Testament remain available for our learning today, and they bring us comfort and hope (Romans 15:4).


So... Yes!  As God’s people we should still take hope in that promise. God has not changed! It is time to humble ourselves, seek God’s face, and pray for the healing of our land. 

Even though our land may seem lost and broken, God wants to heal it.

God cares about us; individually and corporately. God wants what is best for us. Even though our land may seem lost and broken, God wants to heal it. And God has given us an effective, powerful tool  to help us effectuate His will. Prayer!  


Jesus spent time in prayer, he encouraged us to pray, he spent time teaching about prayer.  Now is not the time for discouragement, but it is time for God’s people to faithfully join together in serious prayer for the healing of our land.


There is power in prayer!
