Father, You have said that if Your people, who are called by Your Name, will humble themselves in prayer and seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways, then You will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
O Lord, You are a loving and forgiving God, Who keeps His promises, even though we are a selfish people who have neglected You and Your Word. But now we repent of our wicked ways and seek Your face, for You alone, O Lord can heal our land. You have given us many wake up calls, which we have ignored and the judgment You are about to bring upon us is rightfully deserved. Yet, You have said if we will return to You, You will return to us and not bring about the disaster You had planned. Therefore, O Lord our God, please give attention to Your servants prayer and plea for mercy. Hear from heaven, Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive.
We have wronged our neighbors by not being a shining light for our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus we have wronged You, forgive us this sin. Therefore, we are in grave danger of being defeated by this enemy because we have sinned against You, but now we are choosing to turn back to You and proclaim Your Name, seeking Your face in prayer and petition. Hear us, O Lord and forgive the sin of Your people and bring us back to You, that You may heal our land and preserve our freedom.
Forgive us our sin and teach us the right way to live, so that once again we will be one nation under God, a nation of people committed to You and Your kingdom purpose.
Today, in this country, there is a famine of Your Word and as a result the plagues of irreverence, greed and pride have come upon us and there is an ever-increasing mildew of evil spreading rampant thru our land. Awaken Your people, O Lord, each to the affliction of his own heart. Hear us, O Lord, forgive and act; deal with each man according to all he does, since You know his heart (for You alone know the hearts of all men), so that we will fear You all the time we live in the land You gave our forefathers, the land that will only remain free if You stand beside us and guide us and we Your people stand beside You and follow You.
We have allowed the enemy to infiltrate the land which You have given us and now we are suffering the consequences. Our nation was built upon Your Name and that is why we became a great nation, but now the enemy is taking control and seeks to remove Your Name. Forgive us, O Lord, for allowing such a detestable thing to occur in this great nation of freedom, which You have graciously given us. We have allowed this dreadful thing and therefore You have allowed it, for You have given us freedom of choice and when we persist in taking the wrong path, You will let us, in order to teach us. Lord, we have learned the lesson, now please hear our plea and uphold our cause to return this nation to its roots, to return this nation to You and to Your Christ.
Lord, we have sinned against You and now You are angry with us and about to give us over to the enemy. We now see the truth and have a change of heart and we repent of our pride, greed and irreverence toward You. We have sinned, we have done wrong, we have acted wickedly; and now we are choosing to turn back to You with all our hearts, minds, strength and soul.
Hear our prayer and our plea, and uphold our cause. And forgive us Your people, who are called by Your Name, though we have sinned greatly against You; forgive all the offenses we have committed against You, and show us mercy by conquering this enemy. For we are Your people and Your inheritance, whom You brought out of bondage, out of the iron-smelting furnace of enslavement to sin. Deliver us, O Lord, not because we deserve it, but because of Your great mercy and amazing grace; deliver us for the glory of Your Name and the good of Your people.
May Your eyes be open to Your servant's plea and to the plea of Your people, and may You listen to our cry. For You chose us out from all the nations of the world to be Yours, to be a beacon of light to all the world. You have not failed us Lord, we have failed You.
Praise be to You Lord, give rest to Your people, though we deserve it not. Be with us as You were with our forefathers; do not leave us nor forsake us, though we have forsaken You. Rather, turn our hearts back to You, to walk in all Your ways and live in obedience to the commands, decrees and regulations which You have given us for our own good.
And may these words of ours, which we have prayed before You LORD, be near to You day and night, that You may uphold the cause of we Your people, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other. May our hearts be fully committed to You, the LORD our God, to live by Your decrees and obey Your commands, that You will heal our land.
We, the undersigned do pledge to humble our hearts before You in prayer, to seek Your face and to turn from our wicked ways that You will forgive our sin and heal our land. We humbly ask You, Lord to take the lead and guide this nation back to You, that the freedom of our constitution may once again reign supreme in our land.
