Prayer of Confession – 7 May 2023

Father in heaven, thank You for Your amazing love. Your love that binds You to us. Your love that works our worst for good. Your love that saves us.

Lord, we confess that our default – is to ignore Your love. We do this despite Your daily mercies towards us, as You preserve us both physically and spiritually.

Lord, we confess that our inclination – is to depend on earthly love. The love others have for us. The love we have for ourselves. The love that we think comes from stuff.

Forgive us. Yours is the love of a King for a criminal. The love of the Fairest for the ugliest. The love of the pure for a scoundrel.

What wondrous love is this, O my soul? Father, let my soul delight in Your steadfast love. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
