Prayer of Confession – 19 November 2023

Father, You are the God of justice. You love uprightness and truth. You desire to see justice flowing through the earth, like a mighty river. 

Lord are you a ‘religious’ God? Is all You want from us: to spend some time in church each week, to sing a few songs, to read a few chapters of the Bible?

Father, You are the living God. You are holy, righteous, and just. And You are worthy of a people who are similarly holy, righteous, and just.

Forgive us for dismissing justice. Forgive us for seeking justice apart from You. Open our eyes to behold how justice flows from You, and through You, and to You.

We pray all this in Jesus’ name, amen.
