Pray for our Nation

There has been a lot of media initiative for our nation and all the political change coming with election season. Lots of voices from both sides of the issues have been talking (and talking and talking and talking) about issues, what our nation ought to do and who has the right to have a say.
With all the words flying it is easy to get overwhelmed, frustrated and perhaps discouraged. I know I have been some of these emotions and more!
God was whispering to my heart this morning about this and one command keeps coming ... PRAY.
So I have been thinking about prayer. God asks His children to pray as a method of communication, supplication, intercession, praise and thanksgiving and so much more. But in order to reach out to Him in prayer, there has to be some sort of relationship. Whether that relationship is being explored for the 1st time or is a long term friendship, God hears us when we talk to Him. So no matter what... PRAY.

No matter your understanding, persuasion or feelings, God says PRAY
No matter is you are worried, fearful or excited, God says PRAY
No matter is you don't know what to do, God says PRAY

2 Chronicles 7:14
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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
