What makes you weep?
From 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting Guide
Call to Prayer
In Lamentations 1, the prophet Jeremiah lamented, “The LORD is in the right, for I have rebelled against his word.” He wept over his sin and the sin of the people that had brought devastation to Jerusalem.
Today, as you read, pray, and fast, realize the seriousness of sin and grieve. Recognize the profound consequences that arise when God’s people lose their way.
But also remember hope. The Lord will not abandon His people. Through tears, remember the joy of your salvation. And rejoice in the truth that if we confess our sins, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Ways to Pray
- Ask the Lord to make you aware of the seriousness of your sin.
- Ask Jesus to forgive and cleanse any sin and rejoice in the good news of Jesus Christ.
- Pray for revival in our church and in our land.
