The sins upon the land–adultery

Jeremiah 23:10 (NLT)
For the land is full of adultery,
and it lies under a curse.
The land itself is in mourning—
its wilderness pastures are dried up.
For they all do evil
and abuse what power they have.

Dear Heavenly Father,
My state and county, _________, are full of adultery. We have defiled Your covenant of marriage. Our ancestors have defiled Your covenant of marriage. How many curses lie upon the land?
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Take pity upon us. We yearn for Your kingdom to come, Your will to be done in _______________ as it is in heaven. We cry out for godly marriages. Teach us how to pray for marriages. Teach us how to honor You in our marriages. Teach us how to best support the institution of marriage in our land. Turn the hearts of our county and state leaders to support the institution of marriage.
Forgive my state and county for its past sins of adultery and for its laws that weaken the covenant of marriage. Forgive me of my attitudes that are not in alignment with Your principles of godly marriage. We cry out for the Blood of Jesus over the land and declare blessings upon it. Bless my state and county. Bless the marriages, and bless the land.
We thank You for Your great love for us. God, You are rich in mercy. You have made us alive with Christ when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace we have been saved. You have raised us up with Christ and seated us in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. We thank You for showing us the incomparable riches of Your grace and for Your kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
