Prayer of Confession – 22nd November 2020

Our Father in Heaven, 

We are grateful that what can be known about You have been made plain to us, Your invisible attributes, namely, your eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world.

Forgive us for suppressing the truth of your presence. Exchanging your Glory for created things. Deceiving ourselves that our hopes and dreams can be fulfilled not by You but by cheap and inferior substitutes.

Forgive us also for not honouring You as God or give thanks to You. We became futile in our thinking and our foolish hearts darkened. Claiming to be wise, we became fools.

Oh God, how we need you. Help us to have a fresh encounter with You. Help us seek you and love you with all our hearts, all our souls and all our might. We ask all this in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
