Call to Confession

Revelation 3:15-19

Corporate Confession of Sin

The Valley of Vision

O God, I am full on infirmities, wants, sin; you are full of grace. I confess my sin, my frequent sin, my willful sin; All my powers of body and soul are defiled: A fountain of pollution is deep within my nature. I have gone from one odious room to another, walked in a no-man’s land of dangerous imaginations, pried into the secrets of my fallen nature. Help me in all my doings to put down sin….Save me from the love of the world and the pride of life, from everything that is natural to fallen man, and let Christ’s nature be seen in me day by day. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Silent Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon 

Revelation 1:5b-6

“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

The Heidelberg Catechism

31. Q. Why is [Jesus] called “Christ” meaning “anointed”?

       A. Because he has been ordained by God the Father and has been anointed with the Holy Spirit to be our chief prophet and teacher who perfectly reveals to us the secret counsel and will of God for our deliverance; our only high priest who has set us free by the one sacrifice of his body, and who continually pleads our cause with the Father; and our eternal king who governs us by his Word and Spirit, and who guards us and keeps us in the freedom he has won for us. 

Pastoral Prayer
