Nothing is the same anymore. Irrational decisions cloud our governments. Lies and wickedness take over. Consider this. We are all guilty. Everyone of us must repent. Here is your prayer.
Many were in fear and trembling. They gathered around me as I sat there in despair. I picked myself up from my utter devastation, and fell to my knees and stretched out my hands to God, my God. And I prayed:
“My dear God, I’m so totally ashamed, I can’t bear to face you. O my God—our iniquities are piled up so high that we can’t see out; our guilt touches the skies. We’ve been stuck in a muck of guilt, because of our sins, and have been turned over to foreign kings, to killing, to captivity, to looting, and to public shame—just as you see us now.
“And now, our God, after all this, what can we say for ourselves? For we have thrown your commands to the wind, the commands you gave us through your servants the prophets.’(From Ezra 9:4-9, MSG)
