I repent for myself and for those in my family line who only took care of themselves and did not lovingly shepherd the Flock of the Lord. I repent for those who ate well and clothed themselves well but did not take care of the flock.

I repent for myself and for those in my family line who did not strengthen the weak or heal the sick, did not bind up the injured, did not bring back the strays or search for the lost and ruled harshly and brutally.

I repent for myself and for those in my family line who caused the sheep to be scattered over all the mountains and on every high hill and over the whole earth and made them vulnerable to wild animals because there was no shepherd.

I repent for myself and for those in my family line who cared more for themselves rather than for the flock of the Lord and who enriched themselves at the expense of the flock.

I repent for myself and for those who accepted or taught the doctrine of demons.

I repent for myself and for those in my family who agreed with unrighteous religious authorities.

Lord, I choose to be a leader who is patient and kind. I choose not to be envious. I choose not to boast or to be proud. I will not be rude or self seeking. I will not be easily angered or keep a record of wrongs. I will not delight in evil but will rejoice in truth. I will always protect, always trust, always hope, and always persevere.

Lord, please unseat all ungodly elders.

Lord, please now invite and seat all the righteous elders assigned to me.
