"Pray and Seek My Face!"(2 Chronicles 7:14)

 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

“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.

Pray is not an exception but an expectation.  God has called believers out of the darkness into the marvelous light to have a relationship with Himself.  This relationship calls for an active and vibrant prayer life.  Prayer must become just like breathing to a believer in Christ Jesus.  It is written, "17 pray continually,"(1 Thessalonians 5:17).  Other versions state, "pray without ceasing."
The Scripture above gives a conditional statement to God's people.  He expects humility, prayer, seeking Him, and turning from wicked ways.  There are some results that are imperative in this day and time.  God will hear and respond to answer prayers.  He will give forgiveness.  Another conditional statement is, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."(1 John 1:9)  The final outcome is a healed individual, family, community, nation, etc.

Challenge: Believers in Jesus let us pray, seeking our Heavenly Father, and receive His abundance of answers especially His grace, forgiveness, and purification.  Amen.
