Anne Graham Lotz Confesses 12 'National Sins' Of America At Prayer Gathering

Daughter of Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz has publicly confessed the 12 'National Sins' of America at a prayer gathering as part of the National Day of Prayer proceedings. The 68-year-old Lotz, who chaired the National Day of Prayer Task Force, gave the keynote message on Capitol Hill, according to Christian Post. 

"Our nation is in trouble and we had some wonderful things [happen] today," Lotz declared early in her remarks, adding that she was in attendance at the White House when the president signed the executive order. "I praise God for the liberty that we have. In fact, I was telling Sammy Rodriguez before this that it's almost mind blowing that America has to have an executive order to guarantee religious liberty in America, which shows how far we have fallen from our foundation of faith in the living God."

Then, she went on to repent of America's 12 'National Sins,' asking those in attendance to repeat after her in prayer:

1. "We confess our foolishness of denying You as the one true living God, our Creator to whom we are accountable, living as though our lives are a cosmic accident with no eternal significance, purpose or meaning."

2. "We confess we no longer fear You, and thus we have not even the beginning of wisdom with which to handle the vast knowledge we possess."

3. "We confess to believing that the prosperity of our nation is because we are great, while refusing to acknowledge that all blessings come from your hands."

4. "We confess that we depend upon our military might and our weapons systems to defend us from harm and danger while denying, defying and ignoring You."

5. "We confess that we have succumbed to the pressure of pluralism and our desire to be inclusive so that we honor other gods as though You are just one of many."

6. "We confess that we have allowed the material blessings You have given us to deceive us into thinking we don't need You."

7. "We confess that we feel entitled to what someone else has earned instead of taking responsibility for ourselves and our families as we trust in You."

8. "We confess that we live as though material wealth and prosperity will bring happiness."

9. "We confess our greed that has run up trillions of dollars of national debt. We confess our arrogance and pride that has led us to think we are sufficient in ourselves."

10. "We confess national addiction to sex, to money, to pleasure, to entertainment, to pornorgraphy, to technology, to drugs, to alcohol, to food, to television, to popularity, to ourselves."

11. "We confess that we have marginalized truth and mainstreamed lies."

12. "We confess that we have become one nation under many gods divided and polarized, with license to sin and justice that often does not follow the rules of law."
