Call to Confession
Corporate Confession of Sin
The Worship Sourcebook
God of salvation, in Christ you have done great things—our hearts are filled with joy. By your power you have lifted us out of the wasteland of sin and brought us with joy into your kingdom. Salvation is your gift to us. But we confess that often we try to replace your gift with our own efforts. We try to complete what is already perfect; we try to earn what we already have. Forgive us of our foolishness. Help us to focus on your grace. Help us to live grateful lives. We ask this is the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Assurance of Pardon
‘For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.’
"Be Strong in the LORD'
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all, to stand firm.
‘Make your vows to the LORD your God and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared.’
