"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to 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 is exactly what most people have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values completely.
We have ridiculed the absolute Truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have blown-up abortion buildings and called it justifiable.
We have euthanized the disabled and elderly and called it mercy killing.
We have neglected to spank our children and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have re-defined moral absolutes and called it moral relativism.
We have tolerated perversion and called it diversity.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have lusted after our neighbor’s wife and called it love.
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, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Help us to be bold in proclaiming the Truth in your Word so we no longer mock You, and so we can truly be called "One nation under God."
We openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.
