Bible Prayer and Confession for Us Today

O, Lord, God of heaven,
Our great and awesome God,
You keep Your promises and
give mercy
to those who love and obey You.

Please let Your ear be attentive
and Your eyes open to us,
so You may hear our prayer,
which we pray before You,
day and night,

and have not kept Your commandments,
which You gave to Your servant Moses.

Remember what you said to Moses?

but if you return to Me
and keep My commandments
and do as I ask -
even though you’ve been cast
as far from Me as you can get -
yet I will gather you and bring you
to the place I have chosen to be.’

We are Your servants and Your people,
whom You have redeemed
by Your great power and strong hand!

Bible Prayer for our Nation

Let the peoples of God cry out before the Lord and pray:

nor a joke to unbelievers
anywhere.

Why should anyone ever say,
“Where is their God?”
