  1. I think you missed the point - "even as we confess that our lives are not totally subject to him" is not a statement of how our lives SHOULD be, but how our lives ARE. It is then up to us, through the guidance of God, to make our lives subject to him. It is something of a confession of sin and declaration of faith rolled into one.

  2. This has been printed in my church bulletin, from First Presbyterian Church Shreveport, LA. on December 24, 2012. Prayer of Confession O Father of mercies, we expect Christ's coming in ever new and more complete ways, even as we confess that our lives are not totally subject to him. This is the first sentence of the prayer. I maintain that our lives are subject to him.

  3. Why is the affirmation of faith being changed and (adapted) from a Declaration of Faith? Prayer of Confession seems to be composed in the negative =within the first sentence . . ."even as we confess that our lives are not totally subject to him". *This is NOT correct, our lives are totally subject to him (G-D). Where are the Presbyterian Preachers and Elders going with this false information? From the church bulletin of FPC Shreveport Christmas Eve Service A service for the Worship of G-D.
