READ BY LEADER:

​Let us confess our sins by praying Psalm 38:1-22. 

NOTES:

​Each will read two verses until complete. 

READ BY LEADER:

​Verse 18 says " I will declare mine iniquity". Let us now declare any specific sin and God will forgive. I will begin (if any have sin to confess). 

NOTES:

​Each will make specific confessions. 

READ BY DESIGNATED NOTE READER:

​Prayer Principle:  If we say we have not sinned we make Him a liar.  That's probably not a good idea. (1John 1:10) 

READ BY LEADER:

​One of the prayers that we are told to pray is from Portfolio of Scriptures, Page 2, #11, James 5:16. Together let us read aloud this passage in the King James Version. 

ALL TOGETHER:

​Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectural fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 

READ BY LEADER:

​I know that sometimes when we simply obey what the Scripture tell us, it seems a little foolish.  But let's just do what the Scripture says anyway.  Each one can write two or three faults that you have on your post-it-note and pass  it to the person to your right.  They will take your post-it-not, put a date on it and pray for these items for one month, from time to time. 

NOTES:

​Each of us will  write tow or three faults (not sins) on a post-it-note and give it to the person on your right.  Each takes the post-it-note from your left, date it, and commits to praying for that person for one month from time to time. 

READ BY DESIGNATED NOTE READER:

​ A "fault" is a tendency to do wrong.  Like constant temper, lust, or self-righteousness, etc.
