VerseD: 2 Chronicles 7:14

if my people who are called by my name 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.
2 Chronicles 7:14, ESV

Our God is able to change minds, hearts, and nations.
It only takes trusting His promises and praying as His faithful in Christ.

VerseD: Matthew 6:6

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6:6, ESV

If you only pray publically, are you really connected to God?
It is our quiet, personal time with God that empowers us in the Spirit and helps to conform us to the Son.
How do you grow if you never connect?

VerseD: Matthew 6:11

Give us this day our daily bread
Matthew 6:11, ESV

We trust and ask God to give us just enough for the day, that we may trust Him, depend on Him, and glorify Him.

VerseD: Joel 2:12

“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning”
Joel 2:12, ESV

In this life, it is never too late to turn (or return) to God.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. Seek His mercy and grace anew today.

VerseD: 3 John 1:2

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
3 John 1:2, ESV

This is no prosperity gospel teaching. It is a prayer that as we pursue Christ we remain or get healthy, but not a guarantee. That only comes at the resurrection.

VerseD: Jeremiah 33:3

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
Jeremiah 33:3, ESV

Do not merely test God. He says to earnestly seek Him, and, when you call to Him in faith believing Jesus is His Son who died for you, He will answer in ways you do not know.

Walk with Him. Talk with Him.

VerseD: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5‭-‬6, ESV

There is only one way we can be saved, through Christ.

There is only One to whom we should pray for all people and things in life, our Father in heaven.

We should give thanks and seek His face, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
