Prayer: Almighty God and Father, we bless your name today. You are good and gracious, a God of loving-kindness and compassion. We thank you that you do not treat us as our sins deserve. Because of the work of your Son, you have buried our sins in the deepest ocean. We confess that we sin daily in thought, word, and deed. We are ashamed of our behavior and actions and long to be more like your Son. Please remember your promise to conform us more and more into His image. We pray for our nation and for our leaders. We ask that you would turn their heart of stone to flesh. We plead with you to give your church godly men and women to serve. We pray that you would remove wicked leaders who refuse to submit to you. We pray these things in the name of Christ. Amen.
