We live in a culture that for the most part still acknowledges an idea of God and especially during hardship. It is common today following a tragedy for leaders to say, “we offer you our thoughts and prayers.” Many are praying, crying out for God to start a revival where people will turn to God. What would it be like if more individuals really turned to God in humility with repentant hearts? Throughout the Bible the story of God’s people is that when they turn to Him, He answers their prayers. When they turn to Him individually, He forgives their sin. When they turn to Him collectively, He does a restorative work in their community. 2 Chronicles 7:14 provides a model prayer for how we can humble ourselves and seek God’s favor today.
