'"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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land,' declares the LORD"
(2 Chronicles 7:14).
Oftentimes, I think that I am able to do all things on my own. Sometimes, it is not until a last resort that I feel like I need to go to God in prayer. I'm feeling stressed about numerous things, Paul is losing sleep about things, and finally I say, "I'm going to pray about this." That's not the way it should go. I need to be reminded to "humble myself and pray and seek God's face" first and foremost! I am so thankful that He hears my prayers and that He is so patient with me.
