Prayer of Confession:  Almighty God, we confess that we need your power for the daily battles. We struggle with impatient, worry, doubt, and sin. So often, we take matters into our own hands, rather than rest in yours. We stand in our own strength, which leaves us feeling frustrated and defeated. Mighty God, we need your strength to live a victorious life. Help us face difficult seasons in your great armor, rather than our insufficient flesh. Help us to live in the victory you won, for the sake of your name, which is above every name, we pray. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon: Let us take heart for God sent us His son who submitted and suffered in our place. in Him we find victory, forgiveness and rest for our souls.
