L …if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. (Romans 10:9-10) Let us confess the ways in which we do not trust God nor proclaim Jesus as Lord.
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L Most merciful God…
C Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence and do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:10-12)
L Hear the word of the Lord. When you call to me, I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble and will rescue you and honor you. I will show you my salvation. (Psalm 91:15-16)
