Day 357: Prayer for the saints to come to the cross and offer Christ to God for the forgiveness of the United States
Pray that all the saints would come to the cross and offer Christ to God, praying that He would forgive the United States of the immorality and chaos that are offenses to Him, the righteous God, and asking Him to remember the cross on which our Lord Jesus died, so that we may help to save the country in which we live (Gen. 8:20-22; Dan. 9:4-5, 8-11, 19-20).
Gen. 8:20-22—And Noah built an altar to Jehovah and took of every clean beast and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And Jehovah smelled the satisfying fragrance; and Jehovah said in His heart, I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I ever again smite everything living as I have done. Throughout all the days that earth remains, / Seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, / And summer and winter, and day and night / Shall not cease.
Dan. 9:4-5—And I prayed to Jehovah my God and confessed; and I said, Ah, Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and lovingkindness with those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned and have committed iniquity, and we have acted wickedly and rebelled, to the point of even turning away from Your commandments and from Your judgments.
Dan. 9:8-11—O Jehovah, to us belongs shamefacedness, to our kings, our chief men, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him; and we have not obeyed the voice of Jehovah our God, to walk in His instruction, which He set before us through the hand of His servants the prophets. Indeed, all Israel has transgressed Your law, to the point of even turning away so as not to obey Your voice; thus the curse has been poured out upon us, the very oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him.
Dan. 9:19-20—O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! Do not delay, for Your own sake, O my God; for Your city and Your people are called by Your own name. And while I was still speaking and praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and presenting my supplication before Jehovah my God for the holy mountain of my God.
