God's Prescription for Revival

"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."
The answer to America's problems is a spiritual one. We need to pray for our country like never before. And we need to reach out to a lost world with the gospel like never before. We need more people hearing about who Jesus is and what He promises. We need to get back to the true God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God who sent His Son Jesus Christ to be born in the manger, to die on the cross, and to rise from the dead three days later.
If we turn to back to that God, then He promises He will bless us. But we have not been turning back to Him—we have been turning away from Him. Yet here is the promise of God in Scripture to any nation, including ours: "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" (2 Chronicles 7:14).
But notice to whom God directs His remarks. God didn't say, "If Congress will turn from their wicked ways," or "If Hollywood would turn from their wicked ways. . . ." Rather, God points His finger at His house. He points His finger at you. And He points it at me. He says, "If My people who are called by My name . . . " (emphasis added). There are people in the church today who are living wickedly. And God says, "If you will humble yourself and pray, and seek My face, and turn from your wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive your sin and heal your land."
That is revival. And how we need it today.
