Confession of Sin:Dear Father, we thank you for the many evidences of grace in our lives. We thank you for peace with you and fellow men. We thank you for our families. We thank you for our church. You prosper us and you sanctify us, and we thank you for your means of doing so. We thank you for the Word of God, which is always accessible to us. Therefore we confess that our times of conscientious gratitude to you are all too rare. We confess our acute ingratitude to you. We confess that we do not count our blessings and so glorify your name and access your grace. Instead, we complain and whine. We live in defeat and depression though we have been given new life and the indwelling of The Holy Spirit. This demonstrates our presumptuous pride. This demonstrates that we do not consider our sin nature. This demonstrates that we functionally despite the doctrines of Election and New Birth, without which we would have never believed. O Father, humble us and keep us humble. Make us grateful people that we may prosper and love others. Help us never forget that your salvation is all of grace through the greatest act of selfless love, the life, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ for us. Thank you Father. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
