In chapter 9, the people gathered together and confessed the sins they had done before God. They recounted the history of their nation since Abraham all the way to the exile while affirming God’s goodness. This is strongly stated in 9:33, “In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly.”
Dear God, help us to remember your love, compassion, and justice while we confess our sins to you. You endure in faithfulness and goodness towards us, calling us to repentance, and disciplining us by the love you have for us to be conformed into the image of your son, Jesus Christ. Thank you for treating us with so much grace and going through death to give us life. Help us to turn from our sins and to corporately confess together when the chances arise. We praise you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.
