IF MY PEOPLE…SHALL PRAY

Posted by Bill Stockham in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

[We are familiar with the Old Testament scripture:] “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.” (2 Chron. 7:14) [We have this promise from Our Abba Father that IF WE PRAY; HE WILL HEAR and will heal (repair, thoroughly, make whole) our land (country, nations). Oh, how we need an overall healing in our church, our families and in our homes! As Jesus was getting ready to leave this world, he said:] “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, THAT WILL I DO, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. IF YE SHALL ASK ANY THING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT.” (John 14:13-14) [This reinforces what His Father promised in II Chron. 7:14, so what must we do to see this happen? We must: *HUMBLE OURSELVES *PRAY *SEEK GOD’S FACE. This was Daniel’s experience:] “I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen…His body was like topaz, his face like lightning… and his voice like the sound of a multitude…”Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and TO HUMBLE [chasten, submit] YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR GOD, YOUR WORDS WERE HEARD, and I have come in response to them. (Dan. 10:5, 6, 12) [This was David’s experience, The Lord said to David:] “Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, THY FACE, LORD, WILL I SEEK.” (Psa. 27:8) [To “seek” something means to pursue or look for it. Seeking God’s face implies pursuing an intimate relation with Him. Paul said:] “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church… Husbands, love your wives, even as CHRIST ALSO LOVED THE CHURCH, and GAVE HIMSELF FOR IT…” (Eph. 5:23-25)
-We are in the process of entering our Youth Camp season. So we need to pray and seek God for His favor!
-We will be having State and National Conventions. We need to pray for a Mighty Holy Spirit Presence!
-Our local churches are where the work of the Lord is being accomplished. We need to pray for an Anointing of the Holy Spirit on our Pastors!
-Prayer at the Camps and Conventions. Miracles are needed!!!
This is just the beginning, so please join me in intercessory prayer!

Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that OUR HEARTS MUST SAY TO THE LORD, “YOUR FACE, LORD, WILL I SEEK!”
