If My People Who Are Called by My Name

Since the beginning of the coronavirus my mind has returned time and again the ancient, often-repeated insight and promise found in II Chronicles 7:14:

… 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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

This Scripture, understood in the full context of God’s word, provides not only a promise of healing but guidance for our prayer.
