Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

In a world with many threats and enemies, we find hope and security in his fatherly care. Both Belgic Confession and Heidelberg Catechism put significant focus on the Providence of God and the care God provides for us. Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 9, Question and Answer 26 professes that he “will provide whatever I need for body and soul” and that we are “completely in his hand.” In Belgic Confession, Article 13 professes that he “watches over us with fatherly care.”

Additional Prayers

God of life and transformation,
you have broken into the deathly silence of our sin
and restored your song of life and triumph.
By the power of your Spirit, inspire us to shout your praise with joy
and to tell of the wonderful things you have done, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
