:Have you taken time lately to consciously taste of God's mercy?We like to pretend we've not done anything that would put us in need of mercy. Faking perfection feels safer, more therapeutic-but it cuts us off from the Great Physician's care. Recognizing and confessing our sin points us to our Savior and reminds us of God's outpouring of love. It leads to celebration!Inspired by the classic The Valley of Vision, this book provides short, specific prayers of confession in response to Scripture passages, giving gospel comfort on topics such as purity, justice, waiting, and hope. Ideal for use in church services or personal devotions, these prayers rejoice in God the Father's mercy for his Son's sake and ask for the Spirit's help in pursuing holiness-closing with an assurance of pardon in Christ. Taste and see that the Lord is good.
