Not only were humans handmade in His own image to be like Him so that we could rule[a], He chose us (in Himself and before the creation of the world), to be holy and blameless in His sight.

I cry, Lord, with all my heart. Answer me, O Lord, for I will observe Your statutes. [Psalm 119:145]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us…”

I don’t have to tremble, Father God, nor need I be afraid. You, God of Creation, have long announced it and declared it. I stand as witness that there’s been no god in history like You – the Rock – I know of none. [Isaiah 44:8]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one…”
