Sin of Obedience to God’s Chief Enemy

Posted in Confession of Sin at 23:56 by Trey Austin

Almighty God, we confess that we are inclined to all kinds of wickedness and are drawn away by the desires of the flesh. We follow so often the devices of Satan, your Archenemy, instead of following your holy commandments. Grant that we may learn to keep ourselves within the limits of your Word, and so restrain all the desires of our flesh and fight against the Devil’s wiles. May we go on in the good profession we have made, continuing our course to the end by your grace, holding firm by true and lively faith to Christ your Son, so that we will be found as members of that Eternal Kingdom which he has purchased for us by his own precious blood. Amen.

(Based on a Prayer of Confession by John Calvin)

    I’m always impressed how Calvin’s prayers span the whole of life with its trials, point us to Christ, and take us to heaven in eternity.

    His post-lecture prayers have the same contour… and I like it!
