    I love this verse as it is needed for our society and country. Humble, pray, seek Him and turn away from our wickedness. What else is needed for a revival in America.
  • God is GREAT and he will heal our land and free us from our own wickedness!!!!!!!
  • Kokoeka for verse 14
    Simple instructions : a heart filled with pride doesn 't pray. Humble yourself, pray, turn from your wicked ways then God will hear and heal.
  • 2 chronicle 7:14 is very explicit in telling us about how we can please God, how we can be heard by our almighty, all knowing, all compassion God. First is being able to look at ourselves as someone who needs HIM, humbling ourselves by admitting that we are weak, we are nothing,we are sinners, we just can 't do anything good without HIM, thereby submitting to HIS authority and power. The process would make us seek him and as we spend time in solitude, He becomes bigger bigger, bringing us to a point of repentance, and restoration process begins.....GOD IS REALLY GOOD!!!!
  • Sandra Eley for verse 14
    The same call that God made to Israel he is making to the body of Christ. There is one body, many members denominations BUT there is only one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all. None is greater than He. Surely, until the body is unified, praying as Jesus taught us to pray and not the prayers of self indulgence we will not receive the healing that God so desire us to have.
