Confession of Sin:Dear Father, give us clean hands, pure hearts, a willful love of your law, and resolve to love our neighbor. We confess how little we pray and ask you for mercy, help and strength in these areas. We confess how little specificity in in our prayers. We confess our sinful reduction-ism in how we view your power and promises. Through the New Covenant in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven, secured and restored unto your Creational and Kingdom purposes. How can we fail?! Through Jesus Christ, we have access to both the mysterious doctrines of grace and the wisdom to carry our physical existence. How can we not seek your ways?! Please forgive our lack of gratitude, belief, and repentance. Renew in us a strong, living, active faith in your promises and purposes. Help us love you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Assurance of Pardon through The Gospel of Jesus Christ:
*Be Still, My Soul (p 60)
Thanksgiving: Tithes and offerings
*Speak, O Lord (p 368)
New City Catechism Question 39:With what attitude should we pray? With love, perseverance, and gratefulness; in humble submission to God’s will, knowing that, for the sake of Christ, he always hears our prayers.
Scripture Memory:Proverbs 13:6 Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless, but sin overthrows the wicked.
