L "Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day… for we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal." (2 Corinthians 4:16, 18) Let us confess the ways we continue to trust in the temporary.
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
C O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. (Psalm 130:1-2)
