The thief comes only to steal and destroy;
I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd
lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:10-11

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried; and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; and he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets; and we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. 

Corporate Prayer of Confession

Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from Your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We  have offended against Your holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; and we  have done those things which we ought not to have done;  and there is no health in us. O Lord, have mercy upon us,  miserable offenders. Spare those, O God, who confess  their faults. Restore those who are penitent; according to  Your promises declared unto us in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Grant that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and  sober life; to the glory of His holy name. Amen.

Heidelberg Catechism

Lord’s Day 47

122. What does the first petition mean?

“Hallowed be your name” means: Help us to truly know you, to honor, glorify, and praise you for all your works and for all that shines forth from them: your almighty power, wisdom, kindness, justice, mercy, and truth. 

And it means: Help us to direct all our living – what we think, say, and do – so that your name will never be blasphemed because of us but always honored and praised.
