Prayer of Confession – 26 May 2024


Your command for us to go and make disciples of all nations is crystal clear. We are all saved because Jesus came on a rescue mission for mankind.

But why do we not take this command seriously? Why is the authority given to Jesus insufficient to motivate us? Why do we not feel the urgency and turn to You in earnest petition and heartfelt desperation to save souls?

Forgive us for downplaying the power of the gospel. Forgive us for failing to be persistent messengers of the good news. Forgive us for placing so many other priorities above Your mandate.

O Lord, would You light a fire in our souls to carry out this most urgent mission for Your namesake. Would You increase our faith to hang on to the promise that Jesus is with us always, to the end of the age. In His precious name we pray. Amen.
