I Called and You Did Not Answer

The purposes of this prayer are: Holiness/Righteousness, Justice, Obedience and Repentance.

Holy God, you reminded the Israelites of what you expected from them through your prophet Isaiah, and how much you hated their iniquities, saying, “But you who abandon the Lord, who forget my holy mountain, who prepare a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will kneel down to be slaughtered, because I called and you did not answer, I spoke and you did not hear; you did what was evil in my sight and chose what I did not delight in,” and further, “I will look favorably on this kind of person: one who is humble, submissive in spirit, and trembles at my word. One person slaughters an ox, another kills a person; one person sacrifices a lamb, another breaks a dog’s neck; one person offers a grain offering, another offers pig’s blood; one person offers incense, another praises an idol- all these have chosen their ways and delight in their abhorrent practices. So I will choose their punishment, and I will bring on them what they dread because I called and no one answered; I spoke and they did not listen; they did what was evil in my sight and chose what I did not delight in.” Isaiah 65:11–12, 66:2–4 (CSB). Lord, help us, we pray, to cease our abhorrent practices and seek your forgiveness. Help us to thoroughly repent of our wickedness. Lead us into humility and give us submissive spirits. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
