Father God, we come humbly in repentance. Hear us as you did Josiah and the Israelites. Heal our land. Restore to us leaders who turn to you for wisdom and discernment. Put this nation on your path to righteousness and redemption. Snatch us from the fire, Lord Jesus. You are the answer to all that plagues and puzzles us. We come to your mercy seat in your name and by your authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“But to the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the Lord, thus shall you say to him, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Regarding the words that you have heard, because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 34: 26-27 ESV)
