Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

This song emphasizes our need to listen well, and includes a call to ourselves and others to receive it as God’s truth. Such prayers and exhortations implement the convictions of Belgic Confession, Article 24 and Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 32: “The Bible is the Word of God, the record and tool of his redeeming work. It is the Word of truth, breath of God, fully reliable in leading us to know God and to walk with Jesus Christ in new life.”

Additional Prayers

A Vow to God
Your word has been on my mind, but now
I will also hide your word inside my heart, dear Lord.
Your word has been on my preacher’s lips, but now
I will also hide your word inside my heart.
I have seen your word in books and pamphlets and blogs, but now
I will hide your word inside my heart, dear Lord, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
