God, I know that you are truth and the truth will set us free. I know that we all sin and fall short of your glory. I know that we all must have Jesus in our hearts, be born again and filled with the holy spirit to receive the gift of eternal life in heaven.

I know that you are watching all of us. I know that there will be a day of judgment. I know that grace is a free gift that is given to those who confess their sins daily and yield to the power of the holy spirit for guidance and counsel.

I know that you have given us the Bible as our life's instruction manual. I know that you have asked us to love you with all our heart, mind, body, soul and strength. I know that you have told us to love others and our enemies more than ourselves. I know that you have told us to pray for our enemies and to not judge, criticize or gossip. I know that you have asked us all to be filled with the fruit of the spirit. I know that you have given us the 10 Commandments to live by. I know that you desire everyone to tell the truth. God, I believe in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Please, please, please forgive us and heal our land.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
