For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Father of glory and light. We come to you as people who live in land which has been blessed in incredible ways. We are the first truly Christian nation, founded on Christian principles and lead be Christian men. But over the years we have seen the world, out there, and have envied what we’ve seen in what we think they have. We have left our first love as a nation. We have elected officials and leaders who do not love you and consequently don’t love us either.
Father forgive us for our drift from godly judgment, for our sin of forgetting how we got here and more importantly who got us here. Please transform our hearts and make our nation, once again, a nation of priests and kings. Then, please give us leaders who will honor you and work hard to glorify you in all that they do and say. Please transform us into a people set on a hill so that the other nations will want what we have. They will want you. And then give yourself to them and make them like Jesus too.
We offer up our private confessions now… In the great name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
