We have forsaken your precepts and refuse to repent. We dawn the mask of depravity, thinking you won’t see who hides behind it. We sacrifice to an unknown god and think your wrath will not come. I pray for my people, that they will turn to become your people. I pray Your Holy Spirit replaces hearts of stone with hearts yearning for relationship with You. Only He can change the minds of the fallen. Only He can bring them to repentance, renewal, revival and redemption. Make it so, Holy God. Send your gospel afresh. Touch hearts and turn heads to seek your grace in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift my face to you, my God, for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has mounted up to the heavens.” (Ezra 9:6 ESV)
