Confession of Sin:Holy Father, you are the giver of life, the sustainer of this world and the orderer of seasons and times. Thank you for your Word, through which you reveal yourself, the sense of the world and what our purposes are. Thank you for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through union with Him are we given eternal life, imparted through new birth with renewed minds and purposes. Thank you that we can approach you with bold prayers and you receive our confessions of sin. How then does the current conditions of our hearts often reflect both our ongoing need for grace and our pride in not accessing it? We confess that we are proud and self-absorbed people. We worry when we should worship. We complain when we should be thankful. We look at the short term set-backs with lack of faith in your and even despising you for not giving us what we want on our terms. Father, change our hearts and our attitudes. Help us understand where pride is specifically rooted in our hearts and help us confess to you. Give us the desire to obey you and help us fulfill our duty to love others that it may be our delight to do so. In Jesus Holy Name we pray, Amen.
