Rev. Jeffrey Horn, “Praying the Ten Commandments: The First and Second Commandments”
This series will examine the commandments using a four-fold model for prayer that combines listening to the objective truth of God’s Word with responding to Him from our hearts with love and trust.
- Instruction: What is God teaching me?
- Thanksgiving: What blessings can I thank God for?
- Confession: In what ways have I sinned against God and my neighbor? Ask God for His mercy and trust in His goodness. By the Holy Spirit, cling to the knowledge that in Christ I have been forgiven.
- Praying: What do I and those around me need? Lay these needs out before God, expressing my trust Him, thanking Him for however He will answer.
