Ask God to restore society and the culture with this prayer from the Bible.
It can be distressing at times to see a culture turning farther away from God. Many of our friends and family may be losing the faith and embracing a secular life.
Interestingly, the Bible is full of similar situations, where society crumbles and those who are left cry out to God.
The good news is that God listens to our prayers and will intercede to restore a culture.
Remember, Lord, what has happened to us,
pay attention, and see our disgrace:
Our heritage is turned over to strangers,
our homes, to foreigners.
We have become orphans, without fathers;
our mothers are like widows.
We pay money to drink our own water,
our own wood comes at a price.
With a yoke on our necks, we are driven;
we are worn out, but allowed no rest.
But you, Lord, are enthroned forever;Lamentations 5:1-5, 19-21
your throne stands from age to age.
Why have you utterly forgotten us,
forsaken us for so long?
Bring us back to you, Lord, that we may return:
renew our days as of old.
