Prayer for the Nation


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Dear Heavenly Father, I want to participate in the Lord's Supper with a pure heart.  Therefore, I confess my sins before you.  I am sorry for the times when I have not turned to you.  I am sorry for letting sins or other things come between us.  But most of all, I am sorry that Jesus had to suffer for me.  But Father, I am thankful that Jesus loved me so much that he died for me.  I am in awe at the price Jesus had to pay so that I can approach you.  I praise him for what he has done, and I rejoice that he is my Lord and Savior.  Amen.


Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader:  The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Timothy 1:15).

People:  He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed (I Peter 2:24)
