If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT
Heavenly Father: with godly sorrow, I ask for Your mercy instead of Your judgement for the sins of America.
On behalf of my all Americans, I confess and repent of:
+ Serving other gods – the false gods of money, sex, and power;
+ Indifference toward the erosion of Christan religious liberty in America;
+ Dishonoring our Judeo-Christian heritage in government, schools, courts and the military;
+ Removing the Bible and Christian prayer from public schools and events;
+ Allowing our government and the courts to infringe on our God-given rights of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, property, and conscience;
+ Aiding and abetting deceitful, crooked people instead of people of good will in politics;
+ Acquiescing in our national sins of Abortion, Unjust wars, Covetousness, Homosexuality, Adultery, and related Sexual sins;
+ Participating in the occult, sorcery, and witchcraft;
+ All other sins known to You.
Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. – 1 John 1:8-9 (NLT)
My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world. – 1 John 2:1-2 (NLT)
+ In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
