America Confesses

Our Father, bring to the remembrance of Thy people. Thine ancient and time-honored promise. “If my people, which 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 sins, and will heal their land.”

We-This company of Thy people assembled would begin now to meet the conditions that will enable. Thee to fulfill Thy promise

May all America come to  understand that right-living alone exalteth a nation, that only in Thy will can peace and joy be found. But, Lord, this land cannot be righteous unless her people are righteous, and we, here gathered, are impart of America. We know that the world cannot be changed until the hearts of men are changed. Our hearts need to be changed.

We therefore confess to Thee that:

Wrong ideas and sinful living have cut us off from Thee.

We have been greedy.

We have sought to hide behind barricades of selfishness; shackles have imprisoned the great heart of America.

We have tries to isolate ourselves from the bleeding wounds of the world.

In our self-sufficiency we have sought not Thy help.

We have held conferences and ignored Thee completely.

~~Peter Marshall~~

 

When I was reading Peter Marshall’s “America Confesses”, the song “Heal Our Land” sung by Wintley Phipps came to my mind so I thought I would share it too in this post, Smile.
