A Prayer for Our Nations

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Forgive us Lord,
For becoming complacent,
With the things of the Nations,
that break your heart.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Our nations are in turmoil.
Our people are lost,
Lost in the darkness of greed and power.
Lost in the abyss of hatred and violence.
Bound by the spirit of corruption and lies.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Our nations are dying,
And the cries of mothers for their children
can be heard in the streets at night.

The innocent are running,
With no purpose or direction,
Consumed with panic,
Allowing anger and rage to drive them.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Forgive us,
Forgive me,
Our royal priesthood,
Your chosen people,
Forgive us for being complacent,
For taking it upon ourselves,
To judge those who only you should judge.
Forgive us Lord,
For not bringing the world before you,
For not pleading,
For not crying desperate cries,
For the lost souls.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
We pray often for the healing of our people,
But are our hearts are broken,
Shattered for the healing of our nations.

Forgive us, Lord,
Forgive me,
Today, you opened my eyes,
You called me,
You spoke to my soul,
My heart is desperate,
It is pleading,
It has pulled me to my knees,
So my tears will flow at your feet.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
My heart is broken,
It is broken and desperate,
Not for the innocent running scared,
Not for the safety of my fellow priesthood.
No Lord, it is truly broken for the lawless ones of our nation.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Send a revival,
In the hearts of Your people,
So that we may become an army,
An army on our knees,
Pleading and crying,
At your altar for the lost and dying souls.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
I cry before you today,
For those lost in the darkness,
Tormented by the chaos within them,
So desperate Lord for something,
Anything to satisfy their empty souls.
Oh, my heart truly is pleading,
For the souls of those who are driven by anger and rage,
Tormented by demons within their minds,
Driven to the point of becoming murderers, rapists, thieves and liars.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Forgive us,
Forgive me,
For not being desperate enough,
To save their souls.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
These are the lost,
The broken,
That you died for.
These are the souls,
You, Lord, took the beating for.
These are the souls,
Whose sin you took upon your shoulders.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
We, your royal priesthood,
Your chosen people,
Have neglected to be broken, as you are, for these souls.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
We have forgotten
You took us,
From the miry clay,
From the darkness of the world,
And showed us your light.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
Send a revival,
In the hearts of Your people,
Help us,
Oh Lord,
To love the way you love us,
Without judgement,
Without condemnation,
Without prejudice,
Help us to love those,
Who even the world has rejected.

Oh Lord,
Oh God,
As we plead,
And cry desperately,
For these souls.
May You heal our Nations,
And may You heal the lands.
