DAY ONE: A NINEVEH MOMENT
“The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.” (JONAH 3: 5)
ADORATION: YOU ARE COMPASSIONATE
“Yet even now…Return to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, weeping and mourning; and rend your heart and not your garments. Now Return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness, and relenting of evil. Who knows whether He will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him?” (JOEL 2:12-14)
“Then the LORD passed in front of Moses and proclaimed [His name], ‘The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth…’” (EXODUS 34: 6)
“We have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly, and rebelled, turning aside from Your commandments… Open shame belongs to us… and to our kings… because we have sinned against you… because of our sins… your people have become a reproach to those around us… we are not presenting these supplications because of any merits of our own, but because of your great compassion.” (DANIEL 9:1-20 excerpts)
Father, forgive us for great Sins in our nation and as believers. We have forsaken God and ignored His Word. We have shed innocent blood and hated one another. We have committed sexual immorality. We have worshipped money and trusted in our own strength. Forgive us!
“O Lord, Hear! O Lord, Forgive! O Lord, Listen and Take Action!” (JOEL 2:12-14)
Father, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to our prayers and repentance for the people of God and for our nation.
Father, forgive us, Your people, for our sins that have grieved Your heart and deserve righteous judgment.
Father, our human action is weak and inadequate for the problems we are facing. We do not trust in kings or princes, in politics or the power of our own hands, but our eyes are on You. Would You rise and take action to revive your Church and to bring about a great turning in this moment of crisis?
