Isaiah 1:16-18 (KJV)
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Oh Lord, I know that we live in a day where people's hearts are turned to themselves. Because they are of the world, they have forgotten their one true God and continue to live in their sins. I have met so many people like this, God, that do not wish to listen to Your counsel but instead walk in their own ways. Because what they have now is giving them happiness, they believe they have no need of You or Your counsel. I pray that such wicked people will wake up. They do not realize the trouble they are in with You and the consequences if they do not repent. Surely, Your wrath is upon them. I pray that these people will be awakened. May their hearts be softened that they may hear Your words and rejoice. Pierce their hearts and lead them out of darkness and into Your light. Surely our souls are dead without You in our lives. So come and revive these people and resurrect their souls today. Lead them out of every sin and addiction. May your forgiveness and mercy be upon them. Cover them with Your blood and cleanse them of all sin. Teach them to walk in Your ways, at all times, and no longer when it seems best to them. We need more people that are sincere in their walk with you God. I pray that these people will be among these righteous followers of You, Jesus. I trust in You Lord. Even unto the end, will I follow You. I love You. Amen.
