I am Weary of Relenting
The purposes of this prayer are: Repentance, Holiness/Righteousness and Mercy.
Holy God, the prophets in the Old Testament repeatedly told the Israelites of the intensity of your hatred towards sin. We pray that you help us to lead lives of righteousness, and we thank you for your mercy towards us through your Son, Jesus. Without Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we would face your wrath, as the Israelites did: “You have rejected me, declares the Lord; you keep going backward, so I have stretched out my hand against you and destroyed you- I am weary of relenting. I have winnowed them with a winnowing fork in the gates of the land; I have bereaved them; I have destroyed my people; they did not turn from their ways.” Jeremiah 15:6–7 (ESV). Lord, let us hasten to repent of all our sins and ask for your forgiveness. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
