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

Those who quote this passage have a tendency to leave out the part that says, “turn from their wicked ways”.  But it's crucial to understand that repentance is a necessary prerequisite if our nation is to be delivered from the strongholds of wickedness that have become entrenched in our government and in every other place of power, influence and authority.

Yes, we need to pray.  Yes, we need to earnestly call out to God.  But we also need to repent of our own sins and make sure that we are walking rightly before Him.

you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
than of her who has a husband,"
says the Lord.
