Prayer for Lamentations 1:1

“How she sits alone, the city [once] crowded with people! She who was great among the nations has become like a widow. The princess among the provinces has become a slave.”

Heavenly Father, as we read through the prophetic voice of Jeremiah and his lament over Jerusalem, we are able to have a glimpse into the terrible events that overtook Your chosen people, who chose to follow the path of spiritual adultery rather than obeying Your commands and trusting Your word. Help me learn the lessons from Israel's failure and trust Your word; obey Your voice and walk in spirit and truth. We thank You that You have told us the end from the beginning and that in Your wrath You will remember mercy - thank You that the day is coming when Israel will repent of their sin and be restored as a nation - but we pray that many would recognise Jesus as Messiah and Lord and come to faith in Him, today - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
