O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us, do it for your name’s sake; for our backslidings are many, we have sinned against you. (Jeremiah 14:7)
Have mercy on us, Lord.
O the Hope of Israel, his savior in time of trouble, why should you be like a stranger in the land, and like a traveler who turns aside to tarry for a night? (Jeremiah 14:8 )
Lord, our sins do testify against us; have mercy on us.
Why should you be like a man astonished, like a mighty one who cannot save? Yet you, O LORD, are in our midst, and we are called by your name; do not leave us! (Jeremiah 14:9)
Jesus, come and rescue your people.
Thus says the LORD to this people: “Thus they have loved to wander; they have not restrained their feet. Therefore the LORD does not accept them; he will remember their iniquity now, and punish their sins.” (Jeremiah 14:10)
Jesus, none of our sins are hidden from you; have mercy on us and redirect our steps back into your ways. Thank you.
A word received: Pray for new life in my church and for my people. Pray for steadiness in my people — they wander here and there. Pray for hope to be written on their hearts.
