…O LORD, God of our ancestors,
you alone are the God who is in heaven.
You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth.
You are powerful and mighty;
no one can stand against you!
…Whenever we are faced with any calamity…
…we can come to stand in your presence…
…We can cry out to you to save us,
and you will hear us and rescue us.
O our God, won’t you stop them?
We are powerless against this mighty army
that is about to attack us.
We do not know what to do,
but we are looking to you for help.
2 Chronicles 20:6, 9, 12
The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth
in order to strengthen those
whose hearts are fully committed to him…
2 Chronicles 16:9
There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.
If this were not so,
would I have told you
that I am going to prepare a place for you?
When everything is ready,
I will come and get you,
so that you will always be with me where I am.
…I have come to save the world
and not to judge it.
But all who reject me and my message
will be judged on the day of judgment
by the truth I have spoken.
…”Oh LORD, no one but you
can help the powerless against the mighty!
Help us, O LORD our God,
for we trust in you alone.
It is in your name that we have come
against this vast horde.
O LORD, you are our God;
do not let mere men prevail against you!”
2 Chronicles 14:11
“My light will shine for you just a little longer.
Walk in the light while you can,
so the darkness will not overtake you.
Those who walk in the darkness
cannot see where they are going.
Put your trust in the light
while there is still time;
then you will become children of the light.”
…Look! I am going to put breath into you
and make you live again!
…I will put breath into you,
and you will come to life.
Then you will know that I am the LORD.
A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus,
begging to be healed.
“If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said.
Moved with compassion,
Jesus reached out and touched him.
“I am willing,” he said, “Be healed!”
…They will ask,
‘why did the LORD do such terrible things to this land…?’
“And the answer will be,
‘Because his people abandoned the LORD…’”
2 Chronicles 7:21-22
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…
2 Chronicles 7:13-15
