Before beginning, take three deep breaths.

Dear One, today we read the words, “If you are confident that you belong to Christ, remind yourself of this…”  What powerful words!  When we are lack confidence or are hung up, ensnared in our sins and mistakes like a fish caught in a net, may you remind us that we are yours and that no one can remove us from your hand.  May this reminder free us to share this life-giving and life-changing news with others.  We pray today for all those who feel trapped.  Remind them they are loved deeply by you – so deeply that, in your actions upon the cross, you have redeemed them and made them yours.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, speaking it slowly and deliberately.
