2 Samuel 24

David was cconscience-stricken. “Let us fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into the hands of men.” 2 Samuel 24:14

The angel of the Lord was at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 2 Samuel 24:16

David bought the threshing floor and built an altar to the Lord. 2 Samuel 24:24

Lord, I am conscience-stricken over what I have done. I have sinned. I confess that I have taken advantage of people. Please forgive me. Let me fall into your hands, for your mercy is great. But do not let me fall into the hands of men. Lord, show me what I must do to repent and make things right with you. What restitution must I make to restore what I have taken. I confess that I have placed my confidence in things other than you. Please forgive me, Lord. Make me pure and righteous through the blood of Christ.
