Prayer of Confession

God's Gospel Promise:  Romans 4:1-7
1  What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness." 4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. 5 And to the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, 6 just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:
     7  "Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
               and whose sins are covered;"
 
"Gloria Patri": 
       Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
     and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the
     beginning, is now and ever shall be,
     world without end. Amen, amen.

Prayer of Thanksgiving & Supplication/The Lord's Prayer
     Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. 
     Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on 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, forever. 
     Amen.

~SERMON~
"Daily Prayer for God's Support, Part 2"
Matthew 6:12, 14-15
 
 
Teaching: Your heavenly father will give you all you need for your body and soul each and every day—he only asks that you seek these things from him first through prayer.

 
Main Points:
  Pray that God would give you spiritual support every day.
      Specifically that He would forgive you your sins.
     Forgiveness of sin is the magnanimous and gracious free gift from God.
     Daily forgiveness of sins is conditioned upon your forgiving others.
     Daily forgiveness is just as important as daily material support.

      

Matthew 6: 9-15
 

 9 Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
     hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
     your will be done,
         on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
         as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
         but deliver us from evil.

14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
