“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14-15
Yes, it was only last week that I wrote concerning this scripture. In that column I asked the questions, “Where are the leaders, who fear God enough to say publicly that the only hope for our nation is to humble itself before God? Who is proclaiming that the true need in America is to turn from our wicked ways and to plead for mercy?”
Since writing that column I have become aware of an exciting movement within our city. Pastors and key church leaders have begun to meet weekly for the express purpose of, “crying out to God for a spiritual breakthrough.”
There have undoubtedly been some, perhaps even many, who have already been praying for this very thing, but this is the first movement among church leaders I have heard about.
