Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

“O Lord God! You have made the heavens and earth by your great power; nothing is too hard for you! You are loving and kind to thousands; you are the great and mighty God, the Lord Almighty. You have all wisdom and do great and mighty miracles; for your eyes are open to all the ways of men, and you reward everyone according to his life and deeds. You have done incredible things in the land of Egypt—things still remembered to this day. And you have continued to do great miracles in Israel and all around the world. You have made your name very great, as it is today.
Father all of creation is in Your hand. You are the potter, we are the clay. You control out destiny. We live continually at Your mercy. Our situation seems hopeless. My generation seems determined to do things their way. Our worship has even been corrupted by our vain self wills. We walk according to the dictates of our own heart and our hearts are desperately sick. As a nation, we treat You as if You do not exist. We burn incense to worthless idols. We spend billions on trivial pursuits. We work tirelessly to entertain ourselves so that we don’t have time to think. We are stumbling around like a blind man in a room filled with furniture. We are devoid of any real substance. Everything is tensile and sham. We constantly clamor for more rights and greater blessings but we have not given You thanks for the blessing we have. We want more and more but we give thanks less and less. We have strayed from the beaten path that our founding fathers laid before us. We are under the illusion that we are making our own way but actually we are on the broad way that leads to destruction. We are making good time but headed in the wrong direction. Our only hope is repentance but no one wants to repent. Our pride is such that we will not even acknowledge our sins, let alone turn from them. We need Revival. Nothing less will save this wayward and wicked generation. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!
[Prayer based on Jeremiah 18]
