Heavenly Father, we come before to seek forgiveness & thank You for being our rock & our strength.
And I am ashamed of myself. I am so sorry. As I sit in the dust and ashes, I promise to change my heart and my life.”
The Lord said, “They belong to Me. I will be kind to them. Parents are very kind to their children who obey them. In the same way I will be kind to My followers. You people will come back to Me, and you will learn the difference between good and evil. You will learn the difference between someone who follows God and someone who does not.
Then all the people—the kings of the world, the rulers, the army commanders, the rich people, the powerful people, every slave, and every free person—hid themselves in caves and behind the rocks on the mountains. They said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us. Hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne. Hide us from the anger of the Lamb! The great day for their anger has come. No one can stand against it.”
Happy are those who trust in the Lord, who rely on the Lord.
In that day the mountains will drip sweet wine, the hills will flow with milk, and all the stream beds of Judah will flow with water; a spring will come forth from the Lord’s house and water the Shittim Valley.
Heavenly Father, we pray that You would humble our hearts before you.
A broken spirit is my sacrifice, God. You won’t despise a heart, God, that is broken and crushed.
From now on, brothers and sisters, if anything is excellent and if anything is admirable, focus your thoughts on these things: all that is true, all that is holy, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, and all that is worthy of praise.
