Our Father in heaven, hollowed be Your name. You are the Creator and Sustainer of all things. You are the Almighty. You are the great I AM, the Eternal self-existent One. You have no beginning and no end, no insecurities and no limitations. You are the sovereign of all that is and You have no rivals. You can fold all of creation up like a tent: You spoke it into existence and you can speak it out. You are God and You can do as You please. No one can question You and no one can stop You. All the armies that ever marched cannot stand against You. All the weapons ever designed and armed could not touch You. You are incorruptible, untouchable, unimaginable and every living creature is at Your mercy. Father, we have sinned. We have piled one transgression upon another like bales of straw. We are storing up fuel for the day of wrath. Our selfish ways and our cruel indifference is destroying us and we don’t even understand what is going on. No nation in history has been so blessed and yet we have banned You from our classrooms and courthouses. We act at times as if You do not exist. We are eating the fruit of our rebellion; we are beginning to reap a bitter harvest of our own doing. We have no one to blame other than our selves. We are utterly depraved. We murder the unborn and call it freedom of choice. We persecute anyone who prays in Jesus name or honors Jesus in public speech. We condone sexual perversion and call it tolerance. The only sin in our culture is to call sin a sin. We are weak and worldly and we have no stomach for sacrifice. We want the good life but not the godly life. We love pleasure more than Jesus and we love money more than we love people. We prefer comfort over most anything: we do not want to move or be challenged. We have no desire to expand, explore or experience new things. We are satisfied and complacent. We don’t understand that our indifference will be our destruction. We don’t care and we don’t care that we don’t care. Our only hope lies beyond us; our only hope is Jesus. A part from Spiritual Awakening that only comes from YOU, we have no hope. Our leaders have betrayed us; we are long on politicians and short of statesmen. Not only can these elected leaders not save us, they are hastening our destruction. LORD God Almighty, have mercy on our wretched souls. Your mercy is our only hope. In name of Jesus the Perfect, we pray.
