“If My people, which are called by My name, shall 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.” (II Chronicles 7:14)

We are all relieved knowing the election is finally over, and we are pleased with the results.  Pundits and pollsters are scratching their heads trying to understand how they missed this one. They were certain they knew who would be our next President. After all, numbers do not lie.

What they fail to understand is that we serve a God of miracles. While the experts were polling voters and pushing their pencils, Christians were on their knees. Prayers were being offered to the Lord–from personal prayer and fasting, to the smallest prayer group, to Franklin Graham’s prayer rallies at every state capitol. Believers took II Chronicles 7:14 to heart and sought His forgiveness that promised the healing of our nation. God heard the prayers of His people and instead of sending the wrath that we deserved, He sent His grace and mercy.

We look forward to working with a conservative Congress and President to accomplish family-friendly policies and to protect life and our liberties. Do you recall the days following the terrorist attacks of 9-11 when our nation came together, even in unashamed concerted prayer? For two consecutive Sundays, our churches were filled with Americans who had not seen the inside of a church for years. Sadly, this did not last long, and we fell back into our slumber.

I pray that complacency will not set in again. This may be our last opportunity to restore our nation to its prior greatness, where Jesus Christ is King. We must once again allow the words of II Chronicles to be etched upon our hearts–and truly continue to “seek His face.”

America, America God shed His grace on thee.
