What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! For He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion." So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. Romans 9:14-16 (NKJV)
Father God, have mercy on us.
May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks proud things, who have said, "With our tongue we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?" Psalm 12:3-4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, bring the House of Bishops and the General Convention of the Episcopal Church to repentance.
The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men. Psalm 12:8 (NKJV)

I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 13:6 (NKJV)
Father, thank you for your kindness to me.
Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD brings back the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad. Psalm 14:7 (NKJV)
