How do we see repentance? When God has worked through us to rebuild ruins, will we look to see if there are any areas which need renewal? Will we be among those who lead our community to recommitment?
Lord, we who were once used to fulfill Your plans are not ashamed to publicly acknowledge and repent when we sin against You in our decisions regarding our children, our finances, Your sanctuary, our tithes and offerings; have mercy on us.
Lord, we don’t want to spiritualize what You have accomplished through us in the past and become blind to see how we have now turned our backs at You in our decisions regarding our children, our finances, and Your sanctuary.
