Prayer of Affirmation
(Unison)
We believe that we are children of God
Truly born
Legitimately born
Not slaves, but family
Born of the spirit
God-children
Love children.

We believe that because of Jesus we are heirs of God
Joint heirs with Christ
Inheritors of the kingdom
Destined for greatness in this life and the life to come
Saved for a purpose
Gifted to give.

We believe that we are born of the Spirit
Born from above
Born of water
Born of the Spirit
Born to die to evil
Born to put evil deeds to death
Born to sow the Spirit
Born to do the deeds of the Spirit

We believe that we are children of God.
