 If My people will pray

God can change this nation through prayer and repentance, but we must prevail in prayer until God answers. The Bible teaches, 'If My people...' - that is you and I as believers; God is not talking about the sinner here, He says, 'If My people will humble themselves and pray... I will heal their land.' God has promised in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that if humble ourselves and pray and turn from our wicked ways, He will heal our families our communities, our society; He will deliver us from every curse; He will defeat the enemy. 

In Numbers 14:20, there is an interesting example on the power of intercession on behalf of a rebellious nation. The children of Israel were encamped on the borders of the Promised Land. The ten spies had returned: all agreed it was a wonderful place, filled with an abundance of fruit and provisions, but eight spies said it was impossible to go in. The Israelites then went into open rebellion against God and grumbled against Moses. The Lord, overhearing all of this, appeared to Moses and said, "How long will these people treat Me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe Me? I will strike them down!" Moses then immediately intercedes on behalf of Israel. Following his prayer, God says to Moses, "I have pardoned, according to YOUR word". Do you see what Moses has done? Moses as an intercessor has challenged God so that instead of turning His back on His people because of their wickedness, because of their sin, God says, "Because of the intercessor I will renew My covenant, I reveal My Glory in your nation. I will send the Power of My Spirit on them, backslidden as they are, fallible as they are - because you have stood before Me!"
