Prayer | Restore Compassion & the Fear of the Lord

Lord, I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for all who failed to have Godly compassion toward others.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who became impatient or angry with You, Lord, and blamed You for our suffering and the suffering of our loved ones.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for all false acts of compassion and all substitutionary acts of compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for condemning and judging instead of showing mercy and compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for all those who did not heed the voice of compassion from the Lord, but silenced the cries of those ill, hurting, injured, or in pain.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for mistaking compassion as weakness. I forgive those who have mistaken my compassion as weakness.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not show compassion for others who were in pain. I forgive those who did not show compassion while I was suffering.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for submitting to ungodly authority which required us to suppress mercy and compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for not having the Fear of the Lord and therefore ignoring Your prompting to show mercy and compassion to one of the least of Your children because it would have been too inconvenient, uncomfortable, or costly to do so.

Lord, would You forgive me for willingly disregarding Your words and grieving Your Holy Spirit? Lord, please forgive me for failing to show mercy and compassion to others as You have shown to me.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for not recognizing and acknowledging that You have blotted out our transgressions and the transgressions of others through Your great compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family blood line for rejecting those who were not healed after prayer. I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for believing the lie that God does not care because the pain did not leave, and others did not show mercy and compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for being stuck in our own pain or understanding and not relying on the Lord’s compassion to display acts of mercy on those who were suffering.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for being impatient, judgmental, frustrated, and angry with those who don’t get healed, and with those who don’t seek to be healed but find their identity in their problems.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line who embraced self-righteousness and legalism, denying the Fear of the Lord and the need for compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not show mercy and compassion because they were convinced that the illness, disease and affliction was a judgment of God and for people’s own good and that the direct reason for their affliction was that God was trying to teach them something.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line who embraced illness, diseases, and afflictions as God’s will for our lives.

I repent and renounce for myself and my family line for hard-heartedness and for passing by those in need. Lord, remove the heart of stone, and give me a heart of flesh so that I can feel what You feel and carry Your heart.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line who loved their own comfort, selfish lives, and ease of living more than offering compassion to others.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line who believed that God’s blessings and approval are only on people in excellent health and abundant provision and if people are in pain or suffering, it is their fault, God is not with them, and they may not even be saved.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for anybody who valued money and the cost of caring more than the healing and comfort of those in need. Lord, please forgive me if I have not trusted in Your timing and Your provision.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who were fearful of allowing compassionate healing in the church because it would upset the status quo.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who stopped others from showing compassion. I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who stopped emotional expressions of compassion and blocked demonstrations of empathy.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who chose not to be vulnerable with compassion because they believed that it would hurt their social standing in the eyes of the Church.

I forgive all of those who seemed not to care and offered advice instead of prayer.

I forgive all of those who offered to sell me and my family, while we were in need, nutritional supplements, CDs, DVDs, and other products rather than showing mercy and compassion.

I forgive all those who were selfish and stingy with resources, compassion, and mercy in my time of need.

I ask forgiveness for condemning and accusing others for lack of faith because they remained sick. Lord, forgive me for coming into agreement with the accuser of the brethren.

I choose to forgive those who have not listened to my soft-spoken voice as I have shared the compassionate heart of the Lord.

I now reject the lie that Job’s suffering was from God.

I ask You, Lord, to tear down the walls that I have put up that keep me from experiencing the pain around me and from knowing Your heart.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not trust You, God, to bring us out of the wilderness times of our lives.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for refusing, rejecting, burying, or compromising our identity as compassionate people of God who are agents of God’s healing.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who were unwilling to persevere in long-term compassion for the deeply wounded (see James 5:11).

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who cared more about schedules, programs, and decorum rather than stopping to help the ones in need.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who carried compassion burdens that were not from You, Lord, and for not giving back to You the prayer burdens You gave us. I repent and renounce for carrying false burdens and heavy yokes instead of Your yoke which is light and easy.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who enabled others in their sin, not setting Godly boundaries as Jesus did, and for taking on the role of “Savior” that only Jesus Christ can fulfill.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who have embraced the belief that “I must burn out” for the Lord in exercising compassion. I repent for not resting from times of ministry and seeking the Lord for rest and refreshment.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who responded to compassion by taking on responsibility outside our sphere of authority.

I renounce and repent for myself and for those in my generational line for abusing those with the gift of mercy and compassion to the point of exhaustion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who saw and heard through our physical eyes and ears instead of the compassionate eyes and ears of Christ.

I renounce and repent for myself and for those in my generational line who despised true wisdom and discipline (see Proverbs 1:7), and who hardened their hearts (see Proverbs 28:14) and abandoned the Fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom (see Psalm 111:10, Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 9:10).

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who believed that acts of mercy were a duty and an obligation to fulfill instead of being motivated with the love of Christ. I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for teaching duty and law instead of compassion and the Fear of the Lord.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who ignored the hurting and were too busy to show compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not show mercy, justice and compassion for the poor, the weak, the oppressed, the downcast and the rejected. I ask You, Lord, to show me who to minister to and when. Lord, I ask You to pierce my heart with Your love, compassion, grace, and mercy.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who gave tithes and offerings and fulfilled Christian obligations, but lacked the fear of the Lord in the more important matters of holiness, character, righteousness, justice, mercy, and faithfulness.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for not keeping the commandments, statutes, or judgments You have commanded. Lord, I desire to fear Your name and ask that You would prosper me as Your servant and grant me mercy so that I can complete the work that You have prepared for me (see Nehemiah 1).

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for receiving the compassion of the Lord but not extending that compassion to others.

I declare that the mercy and compassion of the Lord are with those who fear Him and with their children’s children (see Psalm 103:17).

I repent for myself and my family line for those who did not choose to be taught the fear of the Lord. I choose to delight myself in the fear of the Lord and to gain understanding so I may operate in true mercy and compassion.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who hated true knowledge (see Proverbs 1:29) coming from a fear of the Lord, but sought a false knowledge, wisdom, and understanding coming from ungodly sources.

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not fear the Lord and hate evil, but instead practiced evil, and were proud and arrogant and perverse in speech (see Proverbs 8:13).

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who did not walk uprightly, but despised the Lord by walking in devious ways (see Proverbs 14:2); and for those who did not shun evil, but were foolish, hotheaded and reckless (see Proverbs 14:16).

I renounce and repent for myself and my family line for those who feared man instead of You, God, which led them into evil bondage (see Proverbs 29:25).

I choose to honor You, God, and to be like Daniel, who feared the Lord and did not obey an unrighteous law, trusting God with his very life (see Daniel 6:26). I trust You to be my help and shield (see Psalm 115:11).

I choose to be like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who feared the Lord over man’s decree, would not worship a false god, were willing to die in the fiery furnace, yet trusted in God’s ability to rescue them (see Daniel 3:18).

I choose to fear You, Lord, to follow Your precepts (see Psalm 111:10), and find great delight in Your commands (see Psalm 112:1).

I declare that the one who fears the Lord will not harden his heart toward those in need (see Proverbs 28:14).

I choose to be zealous for the Fear of the Lord (see Proverbs 23:17).

I declare I will be God-driven rather than need-driven, and God-fearing rather than man-fearing.

I declare that my delight is in the fear of the Lord, and therefore, I trust the Lord to lead me in compassion.

I declare that I will have compassion on the traditional church as they learn to walk in the true fear of the Lord and learn to recognize and accept the manifestation of the mercy and compassion of the Lord and allow God to be God in His Church.

I declare that I will approach You, Lord, with a contrite heart, a humble mind, and a heart for the lost.

I declare I will not live by the rules for being a Christian, but I will live in the fear of the Lord and His compassion.

I declare that the Fear of the Lord compels me to show compassion to others. I receive Your grace to love others as You love them. I receive Your showers of mercy to run the race set before me.
