I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
“Lord, the Great and Awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love Him and keeps His commandments; we have sinned and done wrong in Your eyes. We are wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from YOUR WORD and commandments. We have not listened to YOUR Voice, or the Holy Spirit that has spoken to us in YOUR NAME. We have ignored our forefather’s wisdom and placed You out of this land.
“Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the people of America
and all the inhabitants of this country from coast to coast, both near and far, in all countries have been unfaithful to You. We and our leaders are covered with shame, Lord because we have sinned against YOU. The Lord our God is gracious and compassionate, and though we have rebelled against You; we have not obeyed the Lord our God or kept the laws You gave us so that we might be blessed. America has transgressed YOUR commandments and turned away, refusing to obey.
Just as it is written in scripture, all this disaster has come on us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to Your truth. The Lord did not hesitate to allow disaster to come upon us, for the Lord our God is righteous in all He does; yet we have willingly disobeyed HIM.
We have responded to You Lord with the killing of innocent children, with sexual desires that are not natural, with bigotry, with lies, with hate, with bitterness and deceit. We have tried to charm You Lord by simply mentioning Your esteemed name, but as a unified NATION, we refuse to stand for YOUR Great Name. We have denied the power of God in every aspect of our country. We have given into lusts, corruption and slander, and do it in YOUR Name. We live for ourselves Oh God, and dare to hope in YOU, by even swearing to remove YOUR NAME completely out of our country, off our platforms, out of our schools, homes and lives.
“Now, Lord our God, who brought your children to where we are in this day, and who made for Yourself a Name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. Lord, in keeping with all your righteous deeds, turn away Your anger and Your wrath from America. Our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors have made America and Your people here an object of scorn to all those around us.
Now our God, hear our prayers and the petitions of Your children. For YOUR sake, Lord,
look with favor on this land once again. Give ear, our God, and hear: open YOUR eyes and see the ruin of this land. We do not make requests of YOU because we are righteous before You, but because of YOUR great mercy. Lord, please listen! Lord, please forgive us, this wicked generation! Lord hear and move upon us! For YOUR sake, my God, do not delay, because this country and your people need to see YOUR hand of SALVATION upon us
In Jesus Name, Amen
