Treasure the Whole Counsel of God
Heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, I come before You in humble awe. You are the one true God, and there is none other like You. Come, I pray, and bless my heart and mind as I hear Your Word. Send Your Holy Spirit into my life so that I may grow in love and grace, and that I may proclaim Your Gospel in word and deed so that others may learn of Your saving Grace. Grant this blessing also to all of my fellow believers, and especially the confirmands. Be with them and enable them to faithfully proclaim Your Word this morning, but above all move them to treasure that Word for all of their lives and remain faithful until death. Amen.
