2 Chronicles 7:12-14 “…if My people…humble…pray…seek…turn…I will hear…, and will forgive…and heal their land.” [#IfMyPeople #HealTheirLand #MyGodMyHealer]
2 Chronicles 7:12-14
12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 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.
If the people of God, who are called by the name of God, will
– humble themselves
– seek, crave, require as a necessity the face of God and
– turn from their wicked ways
then God will
– hear them from heaven
– forgive their sin and
– heal their land.
2 Kings 20:1-6 “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you.” [#HeardYourPrayer #SeenYourTears #MyGodMyHealer]
2 Kings 20:1-6
1 In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.’”
2 Then he turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the Lord, saying, 3 “Remember now, O Lord, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what was good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
4 And it happened, before Isaiah had gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 5 “Return and tell Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord. 6 And I will add to your days fifteen years. I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for My own sake, and for the sake of My servant David.”’”
Hezekiah prayed to God to remember how he walked before God in faithfulness and truth / faithfully with a whole heart entirely devoted to God / with wholehearted devotion and how he has done what was good in the sight of God / in the eyes of God.
God heard the prayer of Hezekiah and saw his tears. God healed Hezekiah. God added 15 years to the life of Hezekiah and saved him / delivered him and the city of Jerusalem from the hand of the king of Assyria.
Exodus 15:25-26 “For I Am the Lord Who Heals You” [#IAmTheLord #GodWhoHealsYou #MyGodMyHealer]
25 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet.
There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, 26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
If we listen carefully / If we diligently listen and pay attention to the voice of the Lord our God and do what is right in His eyes / in His sight if we pay attention / if we listen to His commands and keep foremost in our thoughts and actively obey all His decrees / all His precepts and statutes, He will not bring on us / He will not put on us any of the diseases He brought / He put on the Egyptians, for He is the Lord, who heals us – YHWH (Yahweh)-Ropheeka.
Pray for 7 Christian families forced to flee village in Jharkhand in India after facing intimidation, harassment, threats from local fundamentalist group, HJM and 3 families forcefully converted to Hinduism [#PleasePray #PrayerRequest #MyGodMyHealer]
7 Christian families were forced to flee their village in #Jharkhand state in India after facing intimidation, harassment and threats from a local fundamentalist group, Hindu Jagran Manch (HJM). 3 other families were forcefully converted to Hinduism.
Hindu Jagran Manch is affiliated to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), the religious arm of the Rashtryia Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), which is the ideological arm of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) party led by President Modi, which retained power in the recent elections of India. The displaced families, including one pregnant woman, from Masiya Mahuwatoli village, Gumla district, Jharkhand state, have sought refuge in neighboring villages.
On June 12, representatives of HJM made a list of Christian families in Masiya Mahuwatoli village, who were then instructed to renounce their faith and convert to Hinduism. At the instigation of the HJM, a crowd of approximately 200 villagers became violent when the families refused to change their religion. Threats included excommunication, land confiscation, prohibition from using the village road, prevention from accessing communal water and exclusion from government rations.
