Many people, in fact billions of people are caught up in watching the upcoming presidential elections, and indeed they are important. All are looking to vote for who they believe to be the candidate they feel will be the best one to bring about change, not only in America, but the world. Someone that can help bring healing to a hurting land. We will be looking for that one who can help a struggling country regain its place in what we perceive to be the world order. We are hearing more and more about we need to see and hear this athlete, or this famous group of people needs to step forward and make a stand on what is going on in the country, and the world. While I do not want to take away from the importance of the upcoming elections, I would suggest that the winner of this race will not be able to do that which is needed. 

In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the bible clearly outlines the solution to not only what we face today, but even what is to come tomorrow. It says that “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. This clearly spells out the fact that we must turn to God and not man or woman.

Again while the election is extremely important, know that if we seek true healing, a change to a dying world, to end the senseless killings, we must follow the formula outlined in this passage. We must humble ourselves, pray, seek his face, and turn from our wicked ways, then he will heal the land. This is the only way we are truly going to impact the direction of this world. 

 In vs 7:15 it says “Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place”. Here he assures us that he will be watching and listening, and we know that if he hears our prayers, that we shall have that which we ask. 

God is waiting to hear from those called by his name, so if you consider yourself to be a true Christian, then join us in praying for a dying world.
