Prayer of Confession

This morning at worship, the prayer of confession spoke to my heart. Although this material is copyrighted and others ought not sell it, my blog is one place that I can save it for my own reflection.

We come to you, Holy God, confident in your goodness and mindful of our brokenness. You have shown us how to live and have set before us your gift of life, but too often we see following you as another way to  prove our worth. We fill our lives with possessions and accomplishments and still struggle to feel that we are enough in the eyes of our friends and families. What do you expect from us, good Teacher? Is it really as simple and as difficult as following you? Help us to trust that nothing is impossible for you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
