Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned against you and the children in our complacency. Open our eyes to truth and our hearts to repentance for the sake of your name and for the future of our families. In our repentance, let this be our cry for your help and redemption. Bring us out of the darkness and into your marvelous light. Go out for the sake of the children, Father, in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Rise up; come to our help! Redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love!” (Psalm 44: 26 ESV)
