Prayer for the Republic on First Week of January 2021
Holy One, God of our Fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and God of the Founders of our Republic.
We beseech You in this hour of our trial for mercies for our Land and people You have so abundantly blessed.
We come before for You for Your help to enable us to turn to You, for we have not been thankful, but have abandoned our foundations which rest on Your commandments and eternal values. We have abandoned our heritage for vanities, foolishness and lies of our own making and those of other nations...
Our life is exceedingly filled with the scorning and scoffing of those who are at ease with the contempt of the mocking arrogant, irresponsible tyrants whom we have chosen,
who disregard Your laws.
Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we are exceedingly filled with contempt and lost our ways to You.
Righteous Judge, give us righteous judges and rulers according to Your heart...
Holy One, pour out on us the spirit of repentance for we do not know our national sins nor how to repent of them.
Our Father, speak to this nation in your mercies that we may be able to return to You.
Our help is in Your name LORD, who made heaven and earth and this nation to be Your servants.
We know not what to do but our eyes are upon Thee.
