Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

This song emphasizes our need to listen well, and includes a call to ourselves and others to receive it as God’s truth. Such prayers and exhortations implement the convictions of Belgic Confession, Article 24 and Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 32: “The Bible is the Word of God, the record and tool of his redeeming work. It is the Word of truth, breath of God, fully reliable in leading us to know God and to walk with Jesus Christ in new life.”

Additional Prayers

A Prayer to Be Attentive to God
Living God, you spoke the whole world into being.
Open our ears, Lord, to hear your Word.
 
You inspired poets, prophets, and apostles to speak for you.
Open our ears, Lord, to hear your Word.
 
You sent your Son to us, the Word made flesh.
Open our ears, Lord, to hear your Word named Jesus, in whom we pray.
Amen.
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
