Awesome Prayer of Confession and Repentance By the Prophet Daniel Over the National Sins of Judah and Israel

Notice in the prayer below, Daniel holds nothing back but is completely truthful about the wickedness and shame of the people of Israel and Judah.  The prayer was so powerful, it received an immediate answer from the throne of God, which leads me to make this statement about America. Unless the pastors, ministers and leaders of the true Church in America fall on their knees in strong repentant prayer for their sins, the Church and the nation, the United States of America will soon taste the mighty hand of God - a phrase in Scripture that means judgment.  

Not one politician in Congress much less the executive branch understands the plight of this nation because of its grave sin before almighty holy and righteous God. Not one  is calling for the nation to repent and get right with God and until we do, our troubles will continue and multiply.  The mantra that is sounded over and again, "God bless America" is nothing but hollow words for God is not going to bless this nation unless we get down to business and admit our sins and wickedness before Him. I recommend that every Christian take this prayer of Daniel and insert the words that depict our nation and confess our sins before God as the leaders certainly are not going to do it!  They are too busy politicking to pay attention to spiritual priorities.

Why do you think Islam is making such great inroads into our nation helped by blind men and women in Washington and in board rooms of major corporations?  I tell you why, we have rejected the God of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ from ruling over us via His mighty Word and have turned to pagan religions such as Islam, so He is allowing a false religion to creep into the very fabric of our society - one that promises to usher in barbarianism and prevent any worship of the true God.  Christian America is about to lose all its religious freedoms yet we go about our business as usual. Jesus said "if the blind lead the blind both shall fall into the ditch."  Washington D.C. is the epitome of the blind leading the blind for certain members of Congress are advocating bringing Sharia law to this nation to replace our Constitution.  What folly!  Then again, the so-called intelligent astute Congress men and women have refused to investigate Obama's background and records in spite of abundant evidence that Sheriff Joe Arpaio's cold case posse has discovered.  We have a usurper in the White House whose very presence in the Oval Office undermines our constitutional republic 24/7.  Every concerned American should write their representatives and Senators and demand they review all of Sheriff Arpaio's case findings proving Obama is a total fraud and hold hearings on the constitutional status of Barack Hussein Obama to be president of the United States. I am not asking you to do something I have not done for I have already contacted my U.S. Senator, John Cornyn to do this. Of course, he doesn't have the backbone to do it.  If he loved this country, he would do so post haste!  

If you want a free America for your children and grandchildren, then you better heed the clarion call to light a fire under your Congressmen before it is too late and the New World Order Gestapo rolls down your street in a military Humvee with a mega horn and tells you your street is now under martial law and you must remain in your house until further orders.  Do not think this cannot happen for it can and may only be a year or so from fruition.

Daniel 9:1-23 NIV

1 In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian kingdom— 2 in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. 3 So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. 

4 I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: 

"O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands, 5 we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. 6 We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. 
7 "Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame — the men of Judah and people of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. 8 O LORD, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you. 9 The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; 10 we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. 11 All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you. 
"Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. 12 You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing upon us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. 13 Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. 14 The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him. 15 "Now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. 16 O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our fathers have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us. 17 "Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. 18 Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name." 

20 While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the LORD my God for his holy hill— 21 while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 He instructed me and said to me, "Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. 23 As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision:
