Forgive Me Lord
Scripture: For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. -1Timothy 6:10
Prayer: You are God and there is no other. As it is written, you ‘look to the ends of the earth, and see everything under the heavens.’ Nothing escapes your notice dear Lord. You sit enthroned above the circle of the earth, as the prophet Isaiah wrote, ‘and you stretched out the heavens like a canopy and spread them out like a tent to live in.’ We praise your glorious name.
We repent for greed; we repent for ill gotten gain; we repent for the love of money and agree with your word that says the ‘love of money is the root of all sorts of evil.’ Forgive us Lord for any and every selfish thing we have done in relationship to money; for coveting someone else’s things, for jealousy, for identity rooted in possessions rather than in your presence and for every single way we have sinned against you in this area. We are sorry Lord and ask for your forgiveness and healing.
As you forgive and heal us, we also ask that you would do the same for our nation in this area of commerce. We stand in the gap for your healing light and presence. We thank you God that those who trust in you will never be disappointed. Our eyes are on you Lord, and together we stand on your word, ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.’ We thank you Lord for hearing our heart cry, for your forgiveness and for your help. In Jesus name, amen.
