Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

The Canons of Dort V, 13 explain that our assurance of eternal security and perseverance cannot “produce immorality or lack of concern for godliness in those put back on their feet after a fall, but it produces a much greater concern to observe carefully the way which the Lord prepared in advance” and it is “an incentive to a serious and continuous practice of thanksgiving and good works...” (Canons of Dort V, 12) Therefore, this sub-section contains songs which express both the desire and the commitment of the believer to walk in obedience for holy living. Woven throughout these songs are expressions of fervent desire for holy living, a dedication to follow God’s will, a surrender of one’s will, and prayers for the Holy Spirit to continue his sanctifying work.

Additional Prayers

A Prayer for Surrender
O Lord Jesus Christ, I give up claim to my towering ambitions.
It’s only in your will that I am free.
I give up claim to my foolish dreams.
It’s only in your will that I am free.
I give up claim to hopes and plans that do nothing for your kingdom.
It’s only in your will that I am free. 
Blessedly free forever.  Amen.
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
