If We’ve Ever Needed You by Casting Crowns
Blessed be the Most High. Praise and honor be to Him that lives forever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, whose kingdom is from generation to generation.
He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven and to the inhabitants of the earth. It is God that worketh in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Lord, when You speak concerning a nation, to pluck it up, and to pull down and destroy it, if that nation, against whom You have pronounced, turn from their evil, You will repent of the evil that You thought to do against it. But if that nation does evil in Your sight, and obey not Your voice, You will repent of the good that You said You would benefit them.
Lord, we have done evil in Your sight. We have undermined the foundation of this country with our philosophy and our human wisdom. We have turned our eyes to our own strength and have turned away from You.
We have allowed Satan to blind us and draw us into sin and depravity. Our pride keeps us from seeking after You, Lord, and leads us to ruin.
You resist the proud and give grace to the humble. Please help us to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly before You.
Lord, we need You. You are the Vine, we are the branches. If we abide in You we will bear much fruit for apart from You we can do nothing.
Search us, O God, and know our hearts; try us and know our thoughts. See if their be any wicked way in us and lead us in the way everlasting. Deliver us from all our transgressions.
Lord, we cry unto thee: make haste unto us; give ear unto our voice, when we cry unto thee. Let our prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of our hands as the evening sacrifice. Set a watch, O Lord, before our mouths; keep the door of our lips. Incline not our hearts to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with those that work iniquity.
Heal us, O Lord. Revive our spirits and lead us back to You. Our relationship to You is our first priority. Teach us to draw close to You so that You will draw close to us. Help us to humble ourselves in Your sight and lift us up.
Great are You O Lord, and greatly to be praised. Your greatness is unsearchable. We will extol thee, O Lord, our King; and we will bless thy name for ever and ever.
Reminder: Tomorrow is our day of fasting and prayer for revival in this country and in the church. You can find the information here.
