Confession of Sin
Sovereign Lord, We are harassed by doubts, fears, and unbelief, yet we choose to live in spiritual darkness. Our hearts are full of sinful thoughts and worries, and we cannot create faith in ourselves at all. When we feel that you are absent, we sink into distress and are tempted to many kinds of sin. We lie to protect ourselves, because we do not trust you with our safety, welfare, and reputation. We lie boastfully about ourselves, because we do not trust you to give us the glory that we so crave. We lie to impress people because we fear that you do not love us, so we look to the love and praise of others instead. We lie to escape the consequences of our sin. Father, forgive us for the many ways in which we lie to each other, and forgive us for the deep idolatries behind those lies. Give us a confidence in you that is so bold that we will move powerfully toward one another in honesty and love. Amen.

Prayer of Supplication & Lord’s Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
