At times I might shut up the heavens
so that no rain falls,
or command grasshoppers to devour your crops,
or send plagues among you.
Then if my people who are called by my name
will humble themselves and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways,
I will hear from heaven
and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
My eyes will be open and my ears attentive
to every prayer made…
