Time of Prayer

"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." 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

God's promises are almost always premised on a condition. "If" is a conditional word. If we meet the condition, God will fulfill the promise. The condition is first, and then the manifested promise comes second. Whatsoever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven (Matt. 16:19, 18:18). Do you see how action on earth precipitates action in heaven? Something happens when we pray, so Christian Life Church has set aside 21 Days of Prayer and Consecration to begin 2015, January 5th-25th.

There is something even more powerful than our personal prayers, it is our cooperate prayers. At Christian Life, we will be meeting together on Wednesdays at 7:30pm, January 7th, 14th, and 21st. One of us can chase a thousand to flight, two of us can chase ten thousand to flight (Deut. 32:30). On the day of Pentecost, "…they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house…" (Acts 2:1-2 KJV).

It was a sound from heaven. Christian Life Church needs to hear from heaven, not from the talk shows, not from the daily newspaper, not even from the politicians but from heaven. If we humble ourselves, pray, seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, God said He will give us three things: 1) a Hearing - then will I hear from heaven, 2) a Helping - I will forgive your sins, and 3) a Healing - I will heal your land.

"Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you." Hosea 10:12 (KJV)
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)
"…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16b (KJV)
