We meet King Solomon in 2 Chronicles Chapter 7, after one of his historic accomplishments of building the Temple. Solomon dedicates the Temple, to the Lord and as soon as he finished praying, we see in the early verses that the spirit of the Lord filled the temple. We see that the Lord appears to Solomon later that night, and says in verse 14, that the people should humble themselves to diligently seek the Lord in prayer and repent from their wicked ways. Then the Lord will bring forgiveness and healing into the land.
This scenario applies in our life as we set on this journey to pray and seek God’s face for the next 21 days. We are also called to humble ourselves and make room for the Holy Spirit to fill the temple of our hearts and souls during these days of prayer. May the Lord help us through the Holy Spirit to identify the things in our lives for which we need repentance and healing. As you make room in your life, for God to move, you will see that the Lord will increase the spirit of prayer in your life. When the church and His people join together in prayer God will bring healing to our nation. It is my faith that God will renew, rebuild & restore your life as you embark on this exciting journey of prayer.
Dear Heavenly father, we pray that your Holy Spirt and your glory will fill our hearts as we set out these next 21 days in prayer. Help me to be open to hear from you and be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s voice in my life. Lead us and guide us as we will be renewed, rebuilt and restored through our prayers. We ask this in Jesus name, Amen.
2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV.
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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.
