Prayer of Confession – 23 Jun 2024

Heavenly Father, we come before You, confessing that we have not always loved as You have called us to love. You call us to love even our enemies, yet we often harbor resentment and anger.

Forgive us for failing to extend grace and compassion to those who oppose us. We acknowledge that in our weakness, we have allowed divisions and conflicts to hinder the flourishing of Your love in our lives and in the world around us.

Grant us the strength to love as You love, to forgive as You forgive, and to reach out with kindness and understanding. Transform our hearts with Your radical love, making us agents of reconciliation and peace.

Lord, help us break down the barriers that divide us, and may Your love flow through us, fostering a community where all can flourish. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
