“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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.” –2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
O Heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, who are in all places and fill all things; the treasury of blessings and giver of life: Come and abide in us, cleanse us from every stain, and save our souls, O Gracious Lord.
Father, once again we have been reminded of the hate and violence that rules our world. Islamic terrorists committed mass murder again, this time in an American city – San Bernardino, California. Lord, remember those who died, who were murdered in the attack. Have mercy and bring comfort to their family and friends. Likewise, bring mercy and healing to those injured by the terrorists. Have mercy on the entire community of San Bernardino, and help the community cope with, and heal from, the tragedy.
Lord Jesus, in Your great mercy You prayed for the forgiveness of those who crucified You, and You taught us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. Lord, after Your example, I pray that You forgive those who aided in any way the terrorist attack. Forgive those who plot future evil deeds in the name of their false religion. Save them from their false religion and the clutches of the Evil One. Show them the evil of their religion, and bring them to a true knowledge of You, to a point of true repentance for their sins, and to salvation in You.
Have mercy upon the United States of America, O God, according to Your lovingkindness and tender mercies. Blot out our transgressions. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sins, for we have sinned against You.
We have allowed our God-given liberties to be taken away by our politicians and leaders. We have allowed Your Word and commandments to be banned from our public squares. We have allowed prayer to be eliminated from our schools. We have allowed Your place in our nation’s history to be erased from our textbooks and our minds. We have allowed the epidemic of abortion to fester out of control. We have allowed perversion, decadence, and depravity of all sorts to become public and commonplace. We have replaced Your Word with the whim of our own opinions for our standards of right and wrong. We no longer keep Your commandments or follow Your teachings.
We admit our many sins, repent, and ask forgiveness for ourselves and our nation. Bring us to a state of true repentance – a returning to You – as both individuals and as a nation.
We confess the Lordship of Jesus Christ over every aspect of our lives and our nation, and it is in His name we pray. Amen.
