Discussion for 2 Chronicles 7

  • David Cornett
    GOD was answering Solomon's prayer from chapter 6. Solomon knew GOD had blessed them with a beautiful temple to worship Him and ha also knew that Israel would spray and in his prayer he asked GOD if they did what would it take to be restored into His favor and blessing. To me it's proof GOD answers prayer if we realize who's fault it is that the blessings have left and we get cold
