To the editor:

“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 heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

This is the prescription for our country right now, with all the problems we are facing – the coronavirus, racial problems, the fires that are devouring California, and the hurricanes that threaten states around the Gulf Coast.

God has come to our aid with problems in the past. God helped us during World War II, which was a devastating war and the tide of the great depression changed when people did what was written in II Chronicles. Humble and pray, seek God’s face, and turn from wickedness. I know God can deliver us from our current condition.
