Sunday, March 10 — Deuteronomy 26:1-11; Psalm 91:1-2,9-16
Romans 10:8b-13; Luke 4:1-13

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me. Then I acknowledged my sin to you. Psalm 32:3,4,5 NASB

Jesus said, “There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10

God of forgiveness, we confess to you all the ways we have fallen short of your desire for our lives. God, we lift up to you the ways we have failed ourselves, our loved ones, and you. Give us the strength and endurance to turn from our failures and return to you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
