14 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.
Calling on the God for help ~
We need you God to take control of our world. We need the virus to stop and we need a miracle of calm in our land. I believe in protest and change, but not in the violence and destruction of so many things. I see things being destroyed and people who need their local businesses to live. As a older person who has seen a lot, I know the power of prayer and I've seen God turn impossible situations around. Let us not forget to call upon the name of God and pray.
Matthew 7:7-12 New International Version (NIV)
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
TURN TO GOD ~
Have you ever wonder if people would turn from wicked ways to God, what would that look like? A peaceful way of life and less stress in the world. Nobody knows what will happen when they go to be at night and wake up in the morning. Fires, destructions and violence is happening. That doesn't change anything for good. Let the prayer start with you and me. Let us hold onto together for God to move upon the earth and restore lives with his power. Let us not forget to pray for those who are sick with the virus and for all the many workers helping them (doctors, nurses, hospital staff and ambulance workers).
TURN TO GOD ~
Philippians 4:6-9 New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this and praying for others too.
