Weekly Confession: Oct. 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 pause now to silently confess our individual sins before confessing together as a congregation from the text in Joel.
We confess that we often doubt Your jealous devotion for Your people and their satisfaction in You. (Joel 2:18-20)
We confess that many times we think our repentance falls on deaf ears. (Joel 2:21-25)
We confess that we lose hope in Your ability to restore broken relationships, heal communities, and wipe away shame. (Joel 2:26-27)
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.
