If a confession in public was sufficient to move God’s hand to relieve a nation in distress it is next to impossible that any of our modern nations is going to successfully use the ancient therapy. Another approach to relief is to pray in secret and expect a public showing of relief (Matthew 6:6), but not even the nations with millions of people using the second method seem to have a healing on their record or transcript and neither method seems to be on any nation’s agenda. The condition for the second method continues for the land not healed.
It is time to stop abusing “If my people who are called by my name…”
You can believe that two persons believing in prayer changes things but that seems to have no effect on cancer or national policy. It does not even prevent a load of junk spilling into the infospace.
Stand and cry, hear and deliver
Healing a land is not miraculous. Taking a stand and screaming comes easily. Study the habits of a baby in need.
‘Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.’2 Chronicles 20:9
A land that refuses to take a stand and scream remains sick.
