Prayer of Repentance
Lord God, our Father in Heaven, You are a great and awesome God, just and merciful to all who call on your name.
Lord, we have sinned greatly. We have not hated what you hate, nor have we loved what you love. We have become apathetic, self-righteous, putting the blame on others, when indeed we are the ones to blame.
We deserve your wrath and judgment.
But you are merciful and forgiving. You bring hope to our hearts again.
But we have been silent when we should have spoken, still when we should have acted.
And now we are in distress. Our faith is shaken, and is counted as foolishness among even our own children. Our nation is crumbling and perverse beyond what we could have ever imagined.
But this is what we deserve, because we did not repent, we did not listen to your voice, and we did not act justly.
We have been given what we have asked for.
Lord, we need you! We need revival once again!
Spare us Lord, from your wrath, and hear our cry, our desperate plea, do not abandon us to our own ways.
We have sinned greatly; forgive us Lord! Bring revival so that we may serve you again and that your name way be lifted up, held in reverence among the nations!
O Lord God, forgive us!
