If My People
By Tom D Blakely
When I test them and hold back the rain
Cause a famine that causes them pain,
Send diseases that kill and destroy
Will they seek Me, or go their own way?
If My people, those called by My name
Become humble and realize their shame,
If they’re sorry for their wicked ways
I will hear them and answer their prayers.
If My people would just seek My face
I’d forgive them their sins and disgrace,
When from heaven I hear their appeal
Their diseased land I quickly will heal.
“If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 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 will heal their land.”
[2 Chronicles 7:13-14]
