Day 2- A Prayer

Lord, protect us corporately and privately from ourselves.

Lord, let the blood of Jesus wash anew over me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Point out to my heart the error of my ways.

Lord, I transgress your perfect law daily and sometimes from moment to moment. At times when I do the right thing it seems natural for my heart to become lifted-up with pride at my accomplishment, not recognizing that all good things come from you.

Lord, forgive me for the times when my trust is weak, when I am anxious over the future and fail to remember you have a plan for my life.

Lord, point out to me the ways and times when I have hurt others with my careless selfishness. Give me the humility and courage to confess my wrongdoings and the compassion to help bind the wounds I have caused. Forgive me for seeking to be satisfied with anything other than to be in your presence.

I John 1:8-10, 2:1-2. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

Fred and his wife Susan began attending Kingsway in June of 2014. They found Kingsway to be a place of refreshment and healing after their previous church experience. Fred is passionate about pursuing God, family, and lifegroups (including his current group which has been meeting continuously for 16 years). Fred and Susan absolutely love the fact that they, their two daughters and their husbands, and grandchildren all attend church together. Fred is a non-recovering “aquaholic” who enjoys spending as much time as possible at the beach, communing with God, working on his videoblog (aptly titled “Still at the Beach”), and all things surf and family.
