EQUIPPING & ENGAGING YOU IN 40 DAYS OF PRAYER.
“How to pray for Healing and Restoration”
“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, I will forgive their sins, and I will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
There is a story being told in 2 Chronicles and if you read the passages immediately before and after 2 Chronicles 7:14 the context of this message may make sense. Solomon had just dedicated the temple and God visited Him and said, I heard your prayer and will accept your sacrifices here but I want to hear from you; I want to hear from the people.
A.W. Tozer said when addressing Christians, “the world is not our playground, it is our battlefield”. The world is corrupt and it is broken and wants to kill the message of the gospel. Do you think God can heal it? Do you think God can bring healing to countries, communities, workplaces, families and to our individual bodies? Of course, He can, but He wants to use us as first responders. He invites us to take the Gospel to those places that require healing and share His Good News.
Much of the damage we deal with day-to-day is even beyond the ability of governments to fix and we know the only way creation will be restored is with God’s help and with that help, we can take back our families and communities. This week’s lesson looks at the subject of healing and restoration and begins with a reminder; if we ask God and seek His ways, we will see miraculous change.
