The following is a prayer of confession that we will be using at Cornerstone PCA this weekend. If you are an attendee, prepare your heart for communal confession by devouring this prayer through the rest of the week. If you are not… may God richly move your broken heart to cry to him in confession – both individually and corporately (wherever he has called you). What a God. What an honest prayer. What help for weak prayers like me.
Father, teach us not to sin with such abandon.
We do it all so easily:
and then expect an easy forgiveness for the asking.
God, forgive us for our deep and utter disregard for your holy character. Keep us from presuming upon your patience with us in our sin. Loving Father, work in us a godly fear that drives us, not to despair, but to you. And teach us the shortness of our days, that we may learn to live them for your glory, and gain from you a heart of wisdom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
