  Affirmation of Faith
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
Lord, we acknowledge that you are present with us, and attentive to our every prayer.  Lord, through the affirmation of our faith we proclaim You will bless us with a future filled with hope - a future of success, not of suffering. Lord, we repent of our sins and ask for Your help and attention as we call upon Your name.  Lord, we will worship You with our whole heart and pray You accept our sincere worship.

In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 (ASV)
Lord, we acknowledge our fears and worries, and offer them to You now.  Lord, teach us how not to worry about anything, but with a thankful heart offer our prayers and requests to You.
Lord, allow us to experience the unexplainable peace of You that will control both the way we think and feel.

 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing
of your  mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2(NIV)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; - Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)
Lord, we acknowledge our need for Your direction. Lord, we pledge to trust You with all our heart and choose not to depend on our own judgment. Lord, we ask you to lead us and clear the way for us to follow. 

 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:38 - 39 (ASV)
Lord, we acknowledge that you love surrounds and sustains us.  Lord, we are sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. A-MEN.
