Oh God, our Heavenly Father, have mercy on our land of the U. S., and mercy on the lands of the world.
May the governments of all the lands of Earth seek to rule in fairness and justice for all.
I offer my repentance for my acts or thoughts against Almighty God, and as an intercessor, beg repentance for all the governments on Earth, that we all may be cured of “our warring madness”, our incivility and hate and anger, our stubbornness and love of controlling power.
Oh God, Maker and Ruler of Heaven and Earth, remember the cries of hurting people everywhere. Save us from our arrogance and unhumility and selfishness. Deliver us from our oppressors. Help us to stand strong amidst even the most dire circumstances.
I offer my repentance for my acts or thoughts against Almighty God, and as an intercessor, beg repentance for all the people everywhere: That we may not accept a “victim mentality”, but trust in God to empower us honestly and bravely, not blaming others for our plight, so that we may walk in “newness of life” and “reverence for life”.
Oh God, Lord of the Universe, so “high and lifted up that his train [presence and authority] fills the temple, yet you stoop low enough to pick us up and guide us on The Way. We don’t deserve your Indescribable Love or Unfailing Mercies. But you give them to every one of us.
I offer my repentance for my acts or thoughts against Almighty God, and as an intercessor, beg repentance for all the people whose hearts would falter unless you stooped low and nourished us with Yourself.
Oh God, Most Blessed, thank you that we are privileged to “pray without ceasing”. We praise you that you hear our prayers (yes, even in all the many ways there are of praying. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, the Christ (Messiah), Amen.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty,
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth…
I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath or doubting.”
(I Tim 2:1-4, 8 KJV)
