121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Repentance, Reconciliation, Friendship/Fellowship and Solace for Grief.

Eternal Father, in a strongly worded letter that he had sent to the Corinthians, Paul admonished their behavior and caused them to become sorrowful and remorseful. After having received subsequent news from Titus regarding the Corinthians, Paul wrote, “For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it, though I did regret it- for I see that the letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while. I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter.” 2 Corinthians 7:8–11 (NASB). Gracious Lord, when we are convicted of our sins and become sorrowful, we pray that our sorrow is according to your will, that it produces a repentance without regret and leads to our salvation. Forgive us our sins, Lord. Amen.
