Heavenly Father, we come before You today
to ask Your forgiveness and seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says, 'Woe on those who call evil good,' 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 alternative
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.
We 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; cleanse
us from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless those men and women who have been sent to Washington by the
people of America,
and who have been ordained by You to govern this great nation. Grant them the
wisdom to rule,
and may their decisions direct us to the center of Your will. I ask it in the
name of Your Son, the Living Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
