Prayer of Confession
Dear God, we begin each day determined to live as You command; but we fall short. We allow petty annoyances, deeply rooted prejudices, and displaced anger to dictate our words and actions. Our path once paved with good intentions quickly became a series of bumps and potholes, then when we temporarily got back to smooth surfaces we look to ourselves with boastful pride instead of looking to You with praise and thanksgiving. Help us to live in a way that truly reflects You, Your love, Your grace, and Your glory. Help us to be a true reflection of You no matter what our road conditions may be.
Dr. Jennifer Blake gives the final sermon in our series about the reformation. The sixth in the series, To the Glory of God Alone (Soli Deo Gloria), is based on 1 Peter 4:8-11.
