2 Chronicles 7:14 - "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
God says "If MY PEOPLE," not 'if the citizens' or 'if the government' will humble themselves and pray. It is the church who is called to stand in the gap. It is us who get to choose between blessing and curse, life or death. We can either stand in the promises God made for the Philippines or let the enemy carry on with his schemes.
There are children being sold and abused in our own cities, families torn apart in dysfunction, loved ones chained in addictions, young people being misled away from their God-given destinies. We, the church, can do something about this! Never mind the recognition and praise of men-- we must be known in the courts of heaven.
We have to go further than securing our place in heaven when we die. We have been called to declare "on earth, as it is in heaven!" We are to live in freedom, joy, peace, victory, and everything else that comes with being a child of God. When each one of us take our rightful place as child of God in our individual lives, imagine the compounded impact that will make-- first in our homes, then in our workplaces, then in our cities, and finally in the whole nation. Each one of us is a piece in the grand narrative written by our Sovereign God.
So how long do we keep contending? How long will we be on our knees? UNTIL WE SEE THIS NATION CHANGED! And even if we don't get to see it in our own time, our sacrifices will matter in the generations to come. Isn't that a cause worth fighting for?
