JEREMIAH'S PRAYER

"I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.
['For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.  If we live, we live to the LORD; and if we die, we die to the LORD.  So, whether we live or die, we belong to the LORD.'-Romans 14:7]
Correct me, LORD, but only with justice - not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.
Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name.
For they have devoured Jacob [Israel]; they have devoured him completely and destroyed his homeland."
-Jeremiah 10:23-25
