Zechariah 1:12-13 (NLT)
Upon hearing this, the angel of the Lord prayed this prayer: “O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, for seventy years now you have been angry with Jerusalem and the towns of Judah. How long until you again show mercy to them?” And the Lord spoke kind and comforting words to the angel who talked with me.
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies,
We broke covenant with the United States of America. We institutionalized slavery and racism. For 122 years, the state of Mississippi has flown a flag with the confederate symbol. How long until you again show mercy to us?
