Heavenly Father,

The soul of our nation agonizes in pain. We have abandoned the faith upon which our nation was founded. We have denied our children the right to prayer in school and stripped the Ten Commandments from our government offices. Not only have we abused the land and its resources; we have disrespected, devalued and destroyed Your precious gift of life.

 “We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For Your sake, O my God, do not delay, because…your people bear your Name” (Daniel 9:18-19).

Today, as Your children, we stand in the gap. We humbly confess and repent. Please forgive us and heal our land. Our hope lies in You, for Your mercies are great!

In Christ’s Name, we pray.
