We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly (Psalm 106:6).
Dear Lord, We live in a world where people do what is right in their own eyes. They do not realize that the suffering they are going through is a result of their sin and the sins of our fathers. But even more than that, rather than turn to you for comfort, they turn to their governing authorities. They somehow think the government will save them from their troubles. But like Dagon, the impotent Philistine god, the government is an empty idol and will topple.
Please forgive us as we have trusted in false gods for our salvation from the troubles in our lives. Please grant us repentance and turn us back to you with our whole hearts, minds, souls and strength. Be our God once again, we pray, and lift us up for your glory. Without your help, we are lost. We confess our individual sins to you now…In the Name of Jesus, amen.
