A Passion for Christ – Galatians 4:8-20

Prayer of Confession

Forgive us, Lord Jesus, for our restless spirituality that relies on a favorite ritual or customary liturgy or an appealing technique to satisfy our souls. There is some man-made-religion in us all that steals grace from the gospel and robs the glory of God. We pray for the gift of repentance. Strengthen our faith to live by grace alone in Christ alone. Amen.

Advent in Revelation: The Woman and the Dragon – Revelation 12:1-12

Prayer of Confession: Holy Father forgive us for being so caught up in our own little stories that we have no imagination for your over-arching redemption story. We are tempted to downplay the one and only story that redeems our story; to look for little saviors in a world of our own making. Shine the light of your grace in our hearts so that we may see your great work of salvation for time and eternity. To God be the glory. Amen.

Are You the One? Portraits of Jesus from the Gospels: The Resurrection and the Life

Prayer of Confession: O Lord our God, we confess to you our sorry skepticism. We live and labor under out own false limitation, that reality is only what we see and touch and feel. We look to the good times to justify living. Forgive us, Lord, for measuring the meaning of life by what we achieve rather than by what we receive. Teach us, Risen Lord, that eternity justifies living. We believe, help our unbelief. To God be the glory. Amen.
