Day One – THE RETURN 10 Days of Repentance, Fasting and Prayer for Our Nation: Official Prayer Plan

DAY ONE: A NINEVEH MOMENT

KEY SCRIPTURE:
“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)

REPENTANCE:
“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!

INTERCESSION:
“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?

MEDITATION:
• Are we in a Nineveh Moment?
• If so, how can I rightly respond to this divine opportunity over the next 10 Days?

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
