Words of Assurance for Fathers' Day


Words of Assurance for Father’s Day
(based on Psalm 103)

The Lord is like a father to us,
compassionate and merciful,
filled with endless love.
He is not easily angered,
nor does he remain angry forever.
He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
or punish us as harshly as he could.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so strong is his love toward us.
And as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our sins from us.
So be at peace:  you are forgiven!
Thanks be to God!


Words of Assurance following Confession
(based on Psalm 68:19-20)

Bless our Father God,
the God of our salvation,
who daily bears us up
and rescues us from sin and death.
Our God is a God who saves!
