* Praying for healing of the land 2 Chronicles 7:14-16: “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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

If my people will pray is a promise to Israel, not to the Church. Only Israel was a theocracy, the church is not a nation in a specific land. My People was a common phrase for Israel in the Old Testament. There is a principle that we are to pray to receive, however this is not a promise to the Church like it was to Israel. In their conditional covenant God said that if they do this, I will do that. Israel was the only nation ruled by God (a theocracy). They were under a different covenant than the unconditional for the church. If they would obey, God would do what He promised. We are under an unconditional covenant, under grace, so this cannot be a promise that will make everything right in America, in Britain, or any country. To lift this out of its context changes its meaning.

If one is going to take promises to Israel and specifically apply them to us then one might as well apply what was said to Abraham, that I would have uncountable offspring, make me a great nation and be rich. The principle is still there, that we are to pray to receive but again it is not a promise.

Context always makes a difference in having a correct interpretation. 2 Chronicles 7 goes on to state “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. “For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. He is speaking about Israel.
