3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.
20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

Matthew Henry's 2 Chronicles Chapter 7 Bible commentary...
God's answer to Solomon's prayer.
- God gave a gracious answer to Solomon's prayer. The mercies of God to sinners are made known in a manner well suited to impress all who receive them, with his majesty and holiness. The people worshipped and praised God. When he manifests himself as a consuming Fire to sinners, his people can rejoice in him as their Light. Nay, they had reason to say, that God was good in this. It is of the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, but the sacrifice in our stead, for which we should be very thankful. And whoever beholds with true faith, the Saviour agonizing and dying for man's sin, will, by that view, find his godly sorrow enlarged, his hatred of sin increased, his soul made more watchful, and his life more holy. Solomon prosperously effected all he designed, for adorning both God's house and his own. Those who begin with the service of God, are likely to go on successfully in their own affairs. It was Solomon's praise, that what he undertook, he went through with; it was by the grace of God that he prospered in it. Let us then stand in awe, and sin not. Let us fear the Lord's displeasure, hope in his mercy, and walk in his commandments.

jesus said it so clearly if a man come after me let him first deny himself/humility prayer first u have to be in position to pray/if u regard iniquity in your heart god will not hear u/ fasting jesus said when his disciples could not heal the chld; this requires fasting and prayer in other words get out of yourself/ seek ye first the kingdom and all other things will be added unto u so wherever god is reigning and ruling that's where the kingdom can be found hopefully hes ruilng your heart/ turn fron sin and wicked ways because god will spit you out being lukewarm and jesus said repent the kingdom is at hand also he told nick u must be bornagin and don't be conform to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.the gospel is free but it will cost u your life

We are the land...The parable of the seed in different types of earth...That is us. Just as the "seed" is the word of God.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done IN earth, as it is in heaven. Notice IN not ON.
The promise of our inheritance is our healing.
2Cor 4:7 "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us". Lamentation 4:2
"The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter"
When Jesus died, he gave us life. How much more healing would you want?

If we would do as the word says in IIChron:14, I feel this entire world and mostly our country would be so much wiser, compassionate to ALL people and truly blessed.

God is speaking to the church and even we have gone away from the statues, commandments, and judgments of God. Verse 14:"If my people, which are called by my name, etc." would repent from our evil ways, prayer has gotten away from the church. We pray when we need something and it is time again to seek his face and not what he can do for you, because in our seeking; everything else is provided. The world is watching the church folks!

A contrite spirit and a humble heart, GOD will not despise. Fasting and prayers are a symbol of that. Therefore we are assured that He will answer our prayers.

God, my God is the God that not only hears prayers but also answers them. He is the God of covenant; and delights in keeping his covenants. He is the just God that rewards men according to their doings. I love this God.
