It is probably the most quoted verse over the last several years but there is most likely no more important season than now to embrace it fully!
Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:12-14 (NASB)
Yesterday, in response to A Statewide Call to Prayer - Day One, Kim Ulmer, one of TXAPN Regional Council Members from the Heart of Texas, wrote:
go to the 2009 Report to Texas) about Texas being a fire-brand state. He told me, "Texas is a fire-brand state. People love those words, Kim. It appeals to their sensual nature. Few understand what that means. For to be a fire-brand state means that you must first walk through the fire. Texas is walking through that fire, now. I am separating that which is not of Me. There is that which proclaims to be of Me, but which is not. Dross from the wheat. It is time."
The Lord continued to speak:
Amen and amen. Let us bow the knee. Let us raise up altars of praise to our Lord and King. The Lord reigns. Burn us with Your holy fire. Open the floodgates of heaven, Lord, and let it rain!
