Prayer of the Week and Instant Bible Study on Confession


Prayer

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy.

O Lord, You gave us the sacrament of confession so we can have an intimate relationship with You. When we admit our sins we come to know how much You love us. During this Lenten season when we make our confession, may the Priest who hears our confession be Your icon so we can see You and hear Your voice when he reads the prayer of absolution. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Bible Verse
James 5:16
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
