Lord God, I ask you to reveal yourself to each one of us - to me and to ______________________ - as you did to Abraham. I pray that you will speak to us through your Spirit, and not hide from us what you are about to do. Though we are only dust and ashes, may we have the boldness of Abraham in speaking with you and interceding with you on behalf of the people we love. Please spare those we love from judgment in response to our prayer. I pray that you will instill in us the same love of strangers that was in Abraham. May we direct our families to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just. Please bring about for us everything you have promised us. I ask you to bless others greatly and powerfully through us. I pray for every woman who longs to conceive and bear children but has been unable to. Comfort her in her pain and in your time answer the cry of her heart. May she always believe that there is nothing that is too hard for you. We pray together for our city and nation, that you will protect us from grievous sin, especially the sin of sexual perversion. We freely confess that we as a people are guilty of grave sin, and that the outcry against us is great. But we appeal to you as the judge of all the earth to do what is just and right, and not to treat the righteous and the wicked alike by sweeping away the righteous with the unrighteous. We take heart from this story because we see how few righteous men it takes to protect a city from judgment. I pray that each of us will be counted among the righteous, and that you will spare our city and nation from judgment for our sake. I ask this in the name of Jesus, amen.
