Letter: We ask your forgiveness

-A A +A


We ask your forgiveness

Father God, we come to you in the name of your Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we ask your forgiveness. You have blessed this nation and this community with a justice system in which all sides can be heard before a decision is made. Lord, we ask that all those things that are done in secret be made known, that all of us be made aware of all the facts concerning current issues in city government, and that you move upon all of us to execute mercy as well as justice.

We ask you, Father, to allow your Holy Spirit to move upon those in elected or appointed public office to do what is right in your eyes and not their own. We ask forgiveness for not having done this sooner.

Lord God, we ask that you turn the hearts of any that may be seeking to prosper politically at the expense of others, especially any that may be supplanting truth. We also ask for forgiveness for those of us on all sides of these issues who are not willing to listen to the other side. Forgive us for judging before all evidence is heard.

Father, help us lay aside our own selfish and worldly desires and give our system an opportunity to work. We plead the Blood of Jesus and speak His Name over the community of Hodgenville, our local government and our justice system and our upcoming elections. We thank you and we declare in the Name of Jesus that this is a good and godly community with good and godly public servants seeking to do your will, your way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
