Marty posted the following word of encouragement on his Facebook page earlier today…
I just wrote something very personal, but I want to share it with you….
And feel free to share it!
Psalm 51:17 says;
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”
Lord, let a spirit of brokenness and contrition and repentance fall like rain upon our land!
Call the sinner to salvation, CALL the backslider home!
Bring home our wayward sons and daughters!
Call forth mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers,
Call out Holy Spirit, to the men and women of God who are appointed for such as time as this!!
Let our leaders fall on their faces before you oh God, on national television, not as a show, but in genuine repentance and Godly sorrow!
Set ablaze your servants Lord, …yes even those of us who have fallen and failed and struggled!
Return “The fear of the Lord” to our land in such a way that tears will flow like water as people realize the enormity of our transgressions against you Most Holy God!!
Without your mercy oh Lord we perish!
Shine the light of your love upon the heart of every man and woman, every boy and girl for it is your lovingkindess that draws us to you Lord!
In JESUS NAME…AMEN!
