FROM THE PRESBYTERIAN BOOK OF CONFESSIONS:
The Westminster Shorter Catechism (England, 1647) – Q&Q 7.098
Q. 98. What is prayer?
A. Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, for things agreeable to his will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins, and thankful acknowledgment of his mercies.
FROM THE FELLOWSHIP THEOLOGY PROJECT – FELLOWSHIP OF PRESBYTERIANS:
Essential Tenets – Chapter III, Section E, Paragraph 1, Sentences 2-3
The first response of gratitude is prayer, and the daily discipline of prayer – both individually and together – should mark the Christian life. The life of prayer includes praise to God for His nature and works, sincere confession of our sin, and intercession for the needs of those we know and for the needs of the world.
