Confessing my country's sins

Lord of heaven and earth, You know what's going on in my country. You know our sins are enormous. Sickening. Despicable. Unfathomable. Unrelenting. We exploit the naive, the weak, the old, the poor, and the traumatized . We kill babie s, no matter what their size. We decide who has a chance to live and what life should look like. We devalue human identity and created purpose, confusing our children and adults about who they are and how you created them. We ignore the handicapped unless they do something amazing that fully-functioning people don't do. We execute criminals , whether they've had a fair trial or not, and we say "Good riddance." We waste our natural resources . We mass-murder our own countrymen and look for someone to blame for it. We desecrate our healthy bodies through dangerous lifestyles, immorality, substance abuse, and food addictions. We call it our personal right to do so. We waste our time . Oh, such a valuable commodity. W
