Changing Hearts US prayer seek to convert people’s hearts, lives

The following is the prayer listed on the Changing Hearts US bookmark:

Dearest Lord,

We come to you with heavy hearts. We have strayed so far from your word. We seek forgiveness and guidance. By forgetting you and straying to false philosophies, we are becoming a godless people. In our selfish and weakened state, we have renamed our offenses to hide our sins. We have allowed it to be said:

  • That the unborn is a “non-person” who has no rights;
  • That euthanasia is “death with dignity”;
  • That neglecting discipline with our children builds “self-esteem”;
  • That filling airwaves and theaters with profanity and pornography is “freedom of expression”;
  • That homosexual unions are “alternative life styles”;
  • That placing politics above moral values is “enlightenment”

Lord, we know you are a powerful God, and because of our offenses you could erase us from the Earth. But we hope in your word, “if my people, who bear my name, humble themselves and pray, and seek my presence and turn from their evil ways, I myself will hear them from heaven and pardon their sins and restore their land” (2 Chr 7:14).

Please change our hearts and forgive our sins! Give us the courage to proclaim your truth to our culture. We pray all this in the Name above all Names, Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen. †
