Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

The Catechism says that those who know Christ’s forgiveness are “to thank God for such deliverance” (Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 1, Question and Answer 2). As a result, “With our whole lives we may show that we are thankful to God for his benefits, so that he may be praised through us, and that we may be assured of our faith by its fruits, and so that by our godly living our neighbors may be won over to Christ” (Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 32, Question and Answer 86).

A Prayer for God’s Mercy
O God, we confess to you that we are double-minded people. We love you, but we love money too. We love you, but we love worldly comforts too. We love you, but we love ourselves too. In our folly, we more often think of ourselves than we think of you. O God, in your depth of mercy center our hearts and minds in you, so that we are double-minded no more. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
