"If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."2 Chronicles 7:14
In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation declaring Thanksgiving as a day citizens should give thanks and praise to God and humble themselves and pray fervently for the return of the blessings of peace, union, and harmony.
This presidential proclamation echoes the promise of God found in our scripture. During this Thanksgiving season, let’s humble ourselves and pray not only for our land and nation, but for family, friends, and neighbors. We all need forgiveness and healing. So take time out to pray and seek His face. He promises that He will hear you from Heaven.
