Great is the Lord’s anger that burns against us because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book. II Kings, 22:13
Lord, great is your anger against us. You have placed us in this land. You called us to worship you. But we have turned away from your Law. We worship ourselves. We removed you from our schools, courtrooms, and the public square. We say we do not need you – that there is no God.
And now you have turned us over to our enemies. Those who hate us will rule over us.
Forgive us, Lord. Send a leader who will help us turn back to you.
