Oh, Father God, let us not follow the footsteps of the Israelites to destruction. We fail you in many ways. We rebel against your teaching. We stumble. Let your Holy Spirit move across this land and bring repentance and turn us from our wickedness. He can turn hearts toward Jesus. He can convict us and turn us back to you, Father. I humbly ask for a might move of faith across this nation that spreads worldwide in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“When the rule of Rehoboam was established and he was strong, he abandoned the law of the Lord, and all Israel with him. In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, because they had been unfaithful to the Lord, Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem And he took the fortified cities of Judah and came as far as Jerusalem.” (2 Chronicles 12: 1,2,4 ESV)
