“If My People…”

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 forgive their sin and heal their land.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)

Many years ago, this Bible verse was given to the church to pray through and consider what God might be saying to the congregation and the community.
In 2020, this verse was once again brought to the attention of the church, with a feeling that there was still “unfinished business” between us and God.
Throughout 2021, we have been reflecting on this verse again, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns, and all that we have been faced with as a church and as part of God’s world.
As of March 2021, we’re still unsure what this all means for us, however we keep praying that God will continue to challenge, shape and guide us into his future…

This verse has also been inspiring Christians across the world to pray. The 24-7 Prayer movement have joined forces with other Christians in forming UNITE714 (www.unite714.com), producing a Prayer Guide and other materials to help us pray together for our world.
