REPENTANCE PRAYER


Heavenly Father, we come before You today to ask Your Forgiveness and seek Your direction and guidance.  We know Your Word says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,” (Isaiah 5:20), but that’s exactly what we have done. We have lost our Spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values. We confess that: We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism; We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism; We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternate lifestyle;  We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery; We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation; We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare; We have killed our unborn and called it choice; We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable; We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem;  Some of us have abused power and called it political savvy; We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition; We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.  We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.  Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some wicked ways in us; cleanse us from every sin and set us free according to Your Will. I ask this in the Name of Your Son, The Living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!

ASK FOR WISDOM


The Word of God is very clear on asking for Wisdom.  Wisdom, true wisdom comes from God. Jesus is wisdom as declared in his Word in 1st Corinthians 1:30, “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.  God’s Word to us says to ask for [His] wisdom! If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.  For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8  So, go boldly to the throne of grace through the precious Blood of Jesus Christ and ask for wisdom.  Call, cry out for wisdom and His promise to us is that our Heavenly Father will give it to you!
