The Lord Be With You Today!
2 Chronicles 7:13-15
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain,
or command locusts to devour the land
or send a plague among My people,
(Speaking to Solomon, the Lord reminds us
that our disobedience and rebellion may cause Him
to respond to our strong and stubborn will in harsh, but deeply loving ways,
in the ways of a Father Who disciplines His children.)
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.
(Lord, help us today remember that we are Your people,
that we are called by Your name.
Help us to humble ourselves. Help us to pray.
Help us to seek You and turn from our wicked ways
so that You will hear us and forgive us and heal our land.
Help us to bend our stubborn knees and stiff neck in repentance.)
Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive
to the prayers offered in this place."
(As we celebrate our country’s birth, as we look to You, Lord,
upon Whose Word this country was founded,
remembering who we are, that we are called by Your name,
as we humble ourselves, as we pray, as we seek You and turn from our wickedness,
You promise to hear our prayers. In You, Lord, we put out hope.
May God bless America.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
