Day of Prayer, Worship and Fasting for Britain, Friday 8 September 2017: I am very concerned by the distress and division in our nation, it is affecting everyone from the Government to the smallest communities in the farthest corners of the nation. The Bible teaches, ‘if My people…’ – that is you and I as believers; God is not talking about the sinner here, He says, ‘if My people will humble themselves and pray… I will heal their land.’
This is what God said to Solomon in 2 Chronicles 7: “If I shut up heaven that there be no more rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people…” (v13). – This is the situation we are in today as a nation; there is a pestilence: there is fear, unemployment, financial mismanagement; every institution we thought we could trust has been exposed as corrupt and inept. Our political leaders are so busy reacting to every crisis that they have so far been unable to chart a course through the storm. We have to face reality, there is only one answer! Only God can deliver. During WWII when Britain faced the German army, King George VI called the nation to prayer seven times. As the people in their thousands were filling the churches, God answered! We could not have survived without God.
God has promised in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that He will heal the land, but we as believers need to humble ourselves and pray and turn from our wicked ways. – He will heal our families, our communities, our society; He will deliver us from every curse; He will defeat the enemy.
