Confession And Repentance

For Confession and Forgiveness to Pave the Way for Powerful Prayers

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
—James 5:16

O Lord, in Your holiness and glory, You cannot tolerate sin. We thank You today that You have made provision for our sin through Your Son, Jesus Christ. We praise and thank You for Your healing, loving power that cleanses us when we confess our sins.

Today, may we corporately confess our sins before You—the sins we have committed as a nation and the sins we have committed individually. As we confess, Lord, bring freedom and release that we may be enabled to pray with effectiveness and power for our President-Elect, our leaders and our nation. Cleanse and heal us, O Lord, in Jesus’ name, amen.

This is the latest in the series of prayers led by the Presidential Prayer Team for the new President and for our nation. If you are interested in receiving the email with each day's prayer assignment you can click here and sign up.
