If My people…Part 3

Point # 3 – God is STILL talking to His Godly King Solomon. He is responding to his request (2 Chron. 6:24-31), that God hear the prayers of His people when they repent for sins which bring trouble on them by way of judgment. “If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” God’s promise hear is to His king.

Read what Solomon prayed and then look at the issues God addresses in His response. […]

If My people…Part 1

      Politically minded Christians… are very aware of the promise of God in II Chron. 7:14.   At least, they are familiar with part of it anyway.

As a result of the prayers I have heard in Christian circles which relied upon this verse. It seemed to me that there were several problems with its use and certainly with the prayers in which it was referenced. Nearly all of these prayers were focused on changing […]
