Father we come to you grieving and mourning on behalf of your people, of which we am a part. We see that your people are weak, divided and confused. They are held in contempt by those who are not your people.
We grieve to see your name dishonored on account of us.
We grieve because the body of your Son is broken by the disagreements and lack of brotherly love among those who bear your name.
We grieve because false teaching abounds and because many of your children have been caused to stumble, and many others are weak and many don't know their right hand from their left.
We grieve because in many places around us wicked men rule and oppress your people, speaking falsely against them, killing some of our brothers and sisters and persecuting many others.
We know these evils have come upon us not only because of the malice of your Enemy - for he can do nothing unless you allow it, but because of the sin of your people.
Lord have mercy upon us, and pardon our sin for it is great. In Jesus mighty Name we all pray…AMEN!!!!!!
