Repentance Prayers for Rage and Hatred/Prayers in Response to the National Day of Rage

This post was first published for prayers for the National Day of Rage. These repentance and replacement points combat rage, hatred and anger and may be used to bring healing to ourselves and our Nation as needed. We can also apply these repentance points as how we have treated Israel.

Original Post as follows:
In response to the call for a Day of Rage, Friday, July 15, 2016, please join together in humbling ourselves in repentance for how we as individuals, in our generations, and as a Nation have not kept the covenant of life and peace with the Lord in the items listed below. Since true repentance involves a change in behavior, please pray the replacement points taken from Scripture as blessings over our families and Nation.

We pray repentance prayers according to 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” In addition, we add replacement and blessing prayers according to Romans 12:21: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

As a member of the royal priesthood, please repent of not keeping the covenant of life and peace (Mal 2:4-5), on behalf of us individually, our generations and our Nation for (items in regular font)…
