Tonight's Scripture and Prayer

"If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." -- 2 Chronicles 7:14

Prayer:  "O God, we humbly confess that we have not always done your will nor held to that which is right.  We have often failed at being the persons you created us to be, and much of that due to circumstances of our own making.  Our nation stands at a dark hour.  We have turned against Your ways and precepts.  We have allowed evil to take hold in our schools, our government, and even in many of our churches.  Give us the strength to turn.  Forgive us for our wrongdoing and inaction.  And let us commit ourselves anew to the path you have set forth for us. And by so doing we ask that You heal our land. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen."

Song: Avalon sings 'If My People.'
