The Answer for our Nation
September 11, 2012
As we remember the tragic events of eleven years ago, for me, I believe that day could have been avoided. That awful day could have been averted not by better intelligence or bigger armies, etc., but by a nation that would be willing to fall on its knees and repent.
The answer for our national ills (social, economic, security, etc.) lies in the following Scripture passage: “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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). This is what our country needs to do: repent.
Hopefully, it is not too late for a national revival or 21st Century Great Awakening. Prayer and fasting are ways to bring about this much needed spiritual renewal. My prayer is that it would begin today.
