Weekly Confession: Sept. 15th
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 have failed to teach the coming generations to fear You and Your judgment as a merciful warning and call to repentance (Joel 1:1-3).
We confess that we don’t know how to truly lament our sin and the loss of provision from Your hand as a result (Joel 1:4-12).
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.
