For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. (2 Corinthians 7:10 ESV)
Ибо печаль ради Бога производит неизменное покаяние ко спасению, а печаль мирская производит смерть. (2 Коринфянам 7:10 Russian)
O LORD my God ~ hear the prayers of all your children of faith on this new day that you have given us. Help the leaders of all local congregations to strongly encourage an attitude of godly sorrow toward the sins that are common among all people. Give us the perfect wisdom of Christ our Lord so that we are able to distinguish between godly grief and mere regret that we may be caught in our sins. Remove any smug attitude of self-righteousness toward those who sincerely repent and seek your forgiveness through the blood that Christ shed for our sins. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
