Opening Prayers/Prayers of Adoration on Repentance

Sermon Illustrations on Repentance

Now the careful words of repentance 

Must be said for me.

He from whom I hope for the robe of immortality

And the ring of immortality

And the ring of dignity,

Who for my arrival slays

The fattened calf from the herd,

Whose blood restored

The structure of the whole world,

And whose blood in the figure of a lamb

Sprinkled and painted on thresholds,

By whom the hand of Didymus is pressed in

And the house of Rahab the harlot is saved.
