Brothers and Sisters. 

Over the past several weeks as so many people have been praying and uniting and searching the word. There is MUCH to be done together in the next weeks, month, and years.

Since we cannot speak for anyone else and we are not anyone’s judge, I know the only place to begin was with us; who believe in THE only healing and living word. 

2 Chronicles 7:14, “and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” I would hear people call out various “wicked ways” that exist in America, but hearts ache over two, in particular, pride and prejudice. 

We as believers know that until we turn from those wicked ways God cannot and will not heal our land. You cannot heal a wound that is still being fed with infection. 

As we join together and pray scripture. Psalm 139:23-24 asking God to search us, to take a deep look at our heart, soul, mind and strength and convict us of any wicked way; any pride or prejudice, any hurt or hate, anything that did not bring Him glory or reflect His Word, will, and ways.

We all have an important part to play in God’s plan to heal our land, and it begins with Him creating a clean heart and clean hands in His people, individually and collectively. 

Philippians 1:6 promises that “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” We are not perfect people, but when we pray and submit to His will and work in us and then through us, we are being perfected, drawing nearer to God every day, abiding in Him so that His love can flow through us.

I encourage you to make a prayer personal, change, and continue it in any way the Spirit leads you.

Lord, Jesus please forgive me and change me in Your love and grace and do not let me make excuses or turn a blind eye to things that You want to remove from me and transform in me. Lord please remove pride, prejudice, and fear that I might not have even recognized; responses or emotions that have been reactions in my life. Replace all of these with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control. Lord, please heal me and heal our land.
