Confession of Sin: Father, You alone are Holy and Righteous. You alone have the standard and precepts for living. Father, why do we manage our fears and rationalize our selfishness? We confess that it demonstrates our ongoing need for your lawful grace to point us to our perfect Savior and King. Father, why do we fret over the sins of others, and spend very little time in confessing our own to you? We acknowledge that this is proof of the pride that covets the failures of others to mask our own willful disobedience. Father, why do we not enjoy the life you have given us and seek contentment when the earth is given to us as your ambassadors? Why do we complain of boredom when the glories of your creation are before us? Father forgive us our presumptuous pride, our willful sins, and our ingratitude. Thank you for the Covenant promise never to leave us nor forsake us, purchased and delivered to us by the Spirit according to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In His name, we pray. Amen.
