Publisher's Description

“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.” But what are “those things”? Why do we confess them? The purpose of confessing our sins is not simply to remind us what great sinners we are, but rather to point us to the great Savior we have. Inspired by the Puritan classic The Valley of Vision, this book provides specific prayers of confession in response to particular Scripture passages. They are ideal for use in church or in personal devotions. These prayers thank God for Jesus’ perfect righteousness and substitutionary atonement for our sins and ask for the help of the Spirit in pursuing holiness. They close with a scriptural assurance of pardon in Christ for the sins of God’s people. Appendices include the hymns referenced in each prayer, as well as the sermon texts that accompanied these confessions as they were originally used in worship services.

Editorial Reviews

At a time when some fear that confession of sin will be a “turn off” to the gospel, Duguid and Houk show how the heart longing for reconciliation with God can find peace and beauty in biblical confession. Long ago, another wrote that grace is not sweet, if sin is not bitter. Duguid and Houk help us face the bitter to taste the sweet.
When Scripture is scattered like seeds into good soil, a garden grows. This book is a fruitful garden, the fruit of good soil—fragrant, nutritious, beautiful. It calls us into the light, humbles us in our varied needs, delights us in God's many mercies. It is a resource for worshiping honestly and well. And it is a resource for living honestly and well. And it is a resource that will bless you when you put it to work.
This book has many virtues. One is its flexibility in being adaptable to a range of situations, including public worship and private devotions. Another is the careful thought that went into the individual prayers. A third virtue is the rootedness of the individual units in Bible passages. Finally, the table of contents shows at a glance that the book covers the whole of the Christian life. I love the overall aims and the method of this book, as well as the execution of details.
"I find it easier to learn about God than to talk to him. These devotionals and prayers assist me in doing both, with the added benefit that they inspire me to pray those prayers with others."

    This book helps to develop a real heart of worship and respect toward God. It's simply an answer to prayer for wanting and desiring something more. Simply fabulous and all churches should utilize this book. It shows us ourselves and that we need God and daily.

    My daughter and I share a reading from "Prone to Wander" now as part of our daily devotions. Each prayer examines and explores areas of sin that are "common to man." This provides an opportunity to identify and acknowledge injuries that have been separated from the healing light of Jesus. The authors have paired each reading with excerpts from scripture that offer exhortation and comfort. At the end of each is a short assurance of pardon, again from scripture. It has helped us further understand the depths of our failings, as well as the height and bread of God's redeeming love.
