O FATHER, PLEASE FORGIVE US BECAUSE WE HAVE SINNED GREATLY AGAINST YOU. WE HAVE FORSAKEN YOU GREATLY TO FOLLOW AFTER GODS OF OUR OWN CHOSEN, AND NOT KEPT YOUR LAWS.
WE HAVE NOT TAUGHT OUR CHILDREN ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD, THEREFORE WE HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THEM GOING ASTRAY. PLEASE FORGIVE US FOR BREAKING YOUR COMMANDMENTS AND CONTRIBUTING TO OUR INQUITIES.
WE HAVE CHANGED YOUR LAWS TO SOME OF OUR MAKING, ADDING TO SORROW AND PAIN, HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOUL.
WE HAVE PLACED OURSELVES IN YOUR JUDGMENT. WE KNOW THAT CAPTIVITY AND PERSECUTION IS OUR FATE BECAUSE WE HAVE FORSAKEN YOU. WE STOOD BY AND ALLOWED YOUR MIDST TO CASUALLY BE REMOVED FROM OUR MIST. WE EVEN ALLOWED HIGH OFFICIALS TO TRAIN OUR CHILDREN TO FORGET YOUR GOODNESS IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING, PLEASE FORGIVE US, O FATHER.
IN THE DAY OF YOUR WRATH WE HUMBLY ASK FOR MERCY. PLEASE DO NOT LET THE ENEMY TRIUMPH OVER US, BUT REMEMBER US WHEN WE WERE FAITHFUL, AND WHEN WE LOVED YOU AND APPRECIATED YOU. WE CAN BE THAT WAY AGAIN. FORGIVE US, O FATHER.
REMEMBER WHEN WE HAVE LOVED YOU COMPLETELY, AND HOW WE HAVE SACRIFICED ALL TO SERVE YOU. FATHER, LET US PROVE OUR FAITHFUL IN THE TRIALS IN WHICH WE GO THROUGH.
DO NOT FORGET US. CAUSE US TO REPENT AGAIN, SO THAT WE MAY SERVE YOU, THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD. HELP US TO SEE US AS WE REALLY ARE: LOST WITHOUT YOU. HELP US, SO THAT WE WILL NOT CONTINUALLY AND TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED. HAVE MERCY ON US, O FATHER. AMEN.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
