Prayer of Confession – 28th Feb 2021


You delight in giving good things to your children. You feed the birds in the air and clothe the lilies in the field. How much more your beloved children.

Yet we have not been thankful to you. We have not been content with your gifts. We have even complained that you did not give us enough.

Lord, forgive us. Forgive us for thinking too little of the gift of salvation. Forgive us for allowing the desires of the world to eclipse your eternal and wondrous goodness. Forgive us for desiring your gifts rather than You.

Let the living water of Jesus quench our deepest thirst. Let the desires of our hearts be satisfied by You and You alone. For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
