A Prayer For Forgiveness

Lord we know that the nation whose God is the Lord is a blessed nation indeed and yet me know that the nations in general an my own nation in particular has turned ours backs on You who made us and redeemed us with the precious blood of Your only begotten Son, our Saviour Jesus, Christ – our Lord.

We have failed miserably as we sought to live our lives apart from You. We have fallen deeper into moral decay and generated into a spiritual void that only You can lighten and heal. Convict us Lord both individually and nationally of our need to turn to You – for You alone are the answer to our shocking downward spiral. I pray that individually and nationally we may turn from our sins, repent of the way that we have walked away form the fountain of life and carved our stagnant cisterns in the putrefying rocks-pools of fallen humanity and look to Jesus as our health and healer – for there is not health in us.

Look done in pity on us for we are lost and miserable offenders, who deserve not your pity but Your judgement. Create in us a clean heart, with purified thoughts and a penitent disposition Father we do not deserve Your mercy but Lord we plead Your pity over our hopeless nations and pray that You would restore to us the joy of our salvation – according to Your great mercy and loving-kindness. Help us to repent, return and remember all that Christ has done on the cross of Calvary for every member of the human race – and turn the hearts of the sinner to their Saviour so that they may be delivered from this world of sin sick world.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Father I pray that this nation in which I live and all those in which reside those that are Your children – would turn from their wicked ways and return to the one and only God and Creator, Who died to set us free, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen miserably as we sought to live our lives apart from You. We have fallen deeper into moral decay and generated into a spiritual void that only You can lighten and heal. Convict us Lord both individually and nationally of our need to turn to You – for You alone are the answer to our shocking downward spiral. I pray that individually and nationally we may turn from our sins, repent of the way that we have walked away form the fountain of life and carved our stagnant cisterns in the putrefying rocks-pools of fallen humanity and look to Jesus as our health and healer – for there is not health in us.
