A Prayer For Mercy
Wake up! Repent and be restored!
Spend time in the Word of God!
Read Lamentations 5:2-14
“Remember, LORD, what has come upon us; Look, and see our disgrace!
The joy of our hearts has ended; Our dancing has been turned into mourning. The crown has fallen from our head; Woe to us, for we have sinned! Because of this our heart is faint, Because of these things our eyes are dim; Because of Mount Zion which lies desolate, Jackals prowl in it. You, LORD, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. Why will You forget us forever? Why do You abandon us for so long? Restore us to You, LORD, so that we may be restored; Renew our days as of old, Unless You have utterly rejected us And are exceedingly angry with us.” | Lamentations 5:1, 15-22 NASB
“Who is a God like You, who pardons wrongdoing And passes over a rebellious act of the remnant of His possession? He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy.” | Micah 7:18 NASB

God is Light!
“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” | 1 John 1:5-7 NASB

Confession of Sins
“but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous, so that He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.” | 1 John 1:7-10 NASB

Christ is our Advocate
Spend time in these verses. Do you know to whom you belong? Are you obedient? They will know we are Christians by our love.
“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever follows His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says that he remains in Him ought, himself also, walk just as He walked.” | 1 John 2:1-6 NASB

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” | 1 Timothy 5:8 NASB

“And My people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” | 2 Chronicles 7:14 NASB
