As we approach this coming Lord's Day it is incumbent upon us to begin preparing ourselves for it. Below is the corporate confession of sin that was confessed at my church last Lord's Day that I found valuable and I have been ruminating on it all this week.
Our father, we have sinned against you by not being content with our lot in life. You have proven yourself faithful over and over again, yet we have had little confidence in your fatherly care. We have not believed in you. We have failed to trust you. We have not leaned on your promise. Indeed, we have been unhappy and discontent with your gifts. We have envied the prosperity of our neighbors. We have coveted that which belongs to others. Father, for these and all our sins, please forgive us for Jesus' sake.
