Weekly Confession: Sept. 16th
Gracious and Merciful Father,
We come before you to confess our sin as Your redeemed and beloved children. May Your Spirit alone convict us of our sin and remind us of our pardon in Christ through repentance.
We confess that we are often surprised at the fiery trials that come upon us to test us thinking it strange that this is happening to us as Christians (1 Peter 4:12-16).
We confess that we frequently fail to entrust our souls to You as our faithful Creator when we suffer for doing good (1 Peter 4:17-19).
We confess these things before You because You are faithful to forgive us in Christ. Bless us with the assurance of our pardon by Your Holy Spirit in Christ alone by faith alone through Your grace alone from Your Word.
