Father, we have turned away from your loving kindness to pursue our own way. We brought anger and retribution upon us. Forgive our walking out of your will, Father. Bring us back into the circle of mercy by your grace. Guide us to righteousness. Bring us to be holy for You are holy. Restore in us the mind of Christ, to love Him and follow Him. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us! Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations? Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your steadfast love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.” (Psalm 85: 4-7 ESV)
