Using Our Power To Shed Blood | Prayer Of Repentance | With Bible Verses | Ezekiel 22 

O Lord God, 

Almighty and Everlasting Father, I come before You with a heavy heart, burdened by the sins of my people, Israel, who have used their power to shed blood. I kneel before You in repentance, seeking Your forgiveness and mercy, knowing that You are a God of justice and righteousness.

As I delve into your sacred scriptures, I am confronted by Your holy standards and Your abhorrence of the shedding of innocent blood. In Proverbs 6:16-17, You declare that there are six things You hate, seven that are detestable to You, including hands that shed innocent blood. Yet, despite Your clear commandments and warnings, we, the people of Israel, have failed to uphold the sanctity of life and have used our power for violence and destruction.

Forgive us, O Lord, for our abuse of power and authority. Forgive us for the blood we have unjustly spilled, for the lives we have taken without cause or justification. Forgive us for our greed, pride, and arrogance, which have led us to oppress and exploit the weak and vulnerable. We repent of our sins, and we turn to You, the source of all mercy and grace, seeking Your forgiveness and redemption.

Moreover, we confess the grave injustice of using our power to shed blood, perpetuating cycles of violence and revenge. In Ezekiel 18:23, You declare that You take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Lord, we acknowledge the pain and suffering our actions have caused, and we grieve for the lives lost and the families shattered by our violence.

Lord, in Your boundless compassion and mercy, forgive us for using our power to shed blood. Heal the wounds we have inflicted upon Your creation, restore peace and justice to our land, and teach us to wield our power with humility and righteousness. Help us to be agents of reconciliation and instruments of Your peace, seeking the welfare of all people and striving for harmony and unity.

In the precious name of Jesus, whose blood was shed for the forgiveness of sins, I plead for Your mercy and grace upon the people of Israel. May His atoning sacrifice cleanse us from all unrighteousness, purifying our hearts and renewing our spirits. May we be reconciled to You, walking in Your ways and seeking Your kingdom above all else.

May this prayer of repentance rise before Your throne as a sweet fragrance, a plea for Your mercy and forgiveness. Hear our cry, O Lord, and forgive Your people for using their power to shed blood. May Your mercy triumph over judgment, and Your grace lead us to true repentance and transformation. 

In Jesus's name, I pray.
