Pre-Service Prayer:

Heavenly Father, as I prepare to worship this morning I also pray for the confirmands. By the working of the Holy Spirit give them a zeal and a fire in their hearts for You and Your Word. Keep them steadfast in the faith and enable them to fulfill their vows. Grant, I pray, similar blessings upon all who are here today. Bless our worship and receive our prayers. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 100

Instruction for Confirmation provides a focus on studying and learning God’s Word. It is important that we never “grow out” of learning God’s Word, but rather keep “growing in” such study. As young confirmands mature many things seek to take time and energy and to occupy thoughts. The encouragement of our Savior is: Store up treasure in heaven and seek first the Kingdom of God.
