Heal Our Land

Our country needs healing. Our communities need healing. Our neighborhoods need healing. Our families need healing. Our politicians need healing. WE ALL NEED HEALING!! 

What is HEALING?

Noun - the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again

Adjective - tending to heal; therapeutic.

Synonyms - To alleviate, make ease, relieve, help, and lessen the situation 

Sometimes we think we can fix matters and just do it ourselves. Only to find out we are making it worse. The reason is this we think the matter is simple enough that we can do it or fix it, or even put a Band-Aid on it temporarily.  Sometimes we even ignore it, hoping it will miraculously go away.  If it is not done professionally or done correctly from the beginning - matters can get out of hand.  The problem becomes bigger. And when it gets bigger or out of hand......

Now whose fault is that? I would say "Not mine"!!  Another would say "Not mine"!! And another would say "I was minding my own business, it is definitely not mine"!!

Instead of helping one another right from the beginning we need to find out who is the blame first. It doesn't matter who is the blame. Let's just fix it!  How??

Our land needs healing from violence, wrong-doing and from hurt.  In some kind of way, everything that is going on in this country hurts us all, directly and indirectly. What can we do about it? Should we turn our heads, cover our eyes or say it's not me or my family or even say there is nothing I can do?

There is something that all of us can do! Directly and indirectly!  We can pray to our God to heal our land. Heal our country. Heal our neighborhoods and most of all Heal our families.

In the bible - 2 Chronicles 7:14 says:

"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.”

There is a solution!! For us all to come together, pray and ask our God to heal our land!!  Will you help me by joining with me to pray to HEAL OUR LAND?? God Bless Us All!!
