Prayer of ConfessionMighty Savior, in your resurrection you shattered the power of sin and death.  You promise us life eternal, yet we make choices that lead to death.  You did the unthinkable on the cross for us, and yet we live out a casual faith.  Open our eyes to your greatness and your glory, and change our hearts.  Lead us into an abundant life, a life of peace and joy found only in you, Christ Jesus, the risen Lord!

Assurance of Pardon: By Christ's life, death and resurrection, He has convincingly demonstrated that we are never beyond the reach of God's love.  There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
