Weekly Confession for Nov. 13th
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 overwhelmed by times of trouble and forget that You will deliver Your people eternally in the resurrection (Daniel 12:1-2).
We confess that we fail to be wise in seeking to make disciples so that the knowledge of You would increase (Daniel 12:3-4).
We confess that we dread the shattering of the power of Your holy people but fail to seek Your comfort in prayer (Daniel 12:5-7).
We confess that we lack understanding and patience for the time that You have determined necessary for the fulfillment of the redemptive story (Daniel 12:8-12).
We confess all of 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.
