In many Christian circles both prayer and proclamation lift the verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14 with great passion.
It is with good reason. Our land is hurting and in deep need of God’s divine healing. Appropriately, this admonition from God addresses the critical fact that the sin and wickedness in our life as a nation has direct — and disastrous — effects on our health as a nation and as a global community. If we are going to call on God to heal our land, to heal our nation, and to heal our human community, it is vital that we are also forthright in changing our wicked ways. Below is a list of ten vital sins of wickedness that are destroying our land. If Christians are going to take 2 Chronicles 7:14 seriously — and we most certainly should take it seriously — these ten wicked acts must be eliminated across the land.
