Tonight, as we pass the half-way point in our annual review of the 25 lessons in Celebrate Recovery, we note with joy how far You’ve taken us already. As You prepare us to admit the exact nature of our wrongs – to ourselves, to You, and to someone we trust, we rely heavily on the promise of James 5:16 – “Confess your sins to each other, and pray for each other, so that you may be healed.”
What an incredible gift it is to sinners like us to know that, through sincere confession and prayer, we can experience the power of Your ability to heal us from all of our past transgressions. We are both humbled and grateful for this gift, and we thank You and praise You for placing people in our lives from whom we can draw the support we need to take this life-changing step along our personal roads to recovery.
In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.
