Azariah stood up in the fire and prayed aloud:
“For your name’s sake, O Lord, do not deliver us up forever,
or make void your covenant.
Do not take away your mercy from us,
for the sake of Abraham, your beloved,
Isaac your servant, and Israel your holy one,
To whom you promised to multiply their offspring
like the stars of heaven,
or the sand on the shore of the sea.
For we are reduced, O Lord, beyond any other nation,
brought low everywhere in the world this day
because of our sins.
We have in our day no prince, prophet, or leader,
no burnt offering, sacrifice, oblation, or incense,
no place to offer first fruits, to find favor with you.
But with contrite heart and humble spirit
let us be received;
As though it were burnt offerings of rams and bullocks,
or thousands of fat lambs,
So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
as we follow you unreservedly;
for those who trust in you cannot be put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
we fear you and we pray to you.
Do not let us be put to shame,
but deal with us in your kindness and great mercy.
Deliver us by your wonders,
and bring glory to your name, O Lord.”
- from Daniel 3
Amen to the prayers and petitions offered here today.
Dear Lord, we have been very blessed as a nation, but now we kneel in judgment.
The rising evil stole our elections and abused the only contemporary president who fought to restore us as One Nation Under God.
Treasonous hardened hearts work to oppress our liberties, foster chaos, destroy truth, and even seek to abolish the very Word of God.
Yet in these dark times, You remain the Almighty, our Hope and Salvation.
May our hearts be cleansed and transformed, that we become bond servants for Christ.
May Your church grow stronger. May the numbers of those who seek You will be multiplied. We pray for revival of Your Holy Spirit.
in His name we do pray
