Heavenly Father, We have just confessed our faith in You and the path that You have made for us unto salvation through Jesus Christ. Father, we pray that You would make us not only confessors by mouth, but make our hearts and our actions to agree with these truths we have just confessed corporately.
Now, we pray, heavenly Father, that You would strengthen us through the reading and preaching of Your word. Open our ears to hear Your word and give us soft, humble hearts that are ready to receive Your instruction. And may Your Holy Spirit fall upon our pastor with great power as he preaches to us this morning. To you be all honor and glory and power forever. Amen.
