Thanksgiving: I Thank The Lord for Justice, For we who the Lord loves, shall be redeemed and punished when we have fallen short, for only a Father Disciplines His Children! I Thank The Lord for Reverence, For we cannot look to this World to understand what it means to live in Holy Fear! I Thank The Lord for Fasting, For we are called to starve the desires of the Flesh, so that we may enter into the realm of The Spirit!
It is Written, “In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian kingdom– in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land. “Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame–the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, LORD, because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets.” Daniel 9:1-10
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I Pray and ask that you forgive the rebellion of this generation. Daniel read the Word given to Jeremiah and saw what was to come. I pray turning to you Lord with petitions and prayers that you hear the cries of your children for your people, for we have turned away from your commands. I pray Lord that you make right our path and sight and forgive us for our sins. In Jesus Name, I Pray for a Generation that will bring forth signs and wonders to honor you!
