Prayer of Confession – 3rd Oct 2021

Father, every good and perfect gift comes from You. Oh how we love Your amazing and precious gifts, including the gift of sex.

We confess that we often gratify the desires of the flesh rather than walk by the Spirit. Some of us turn people created in Your image into objects of lust. We betray lifelong intimacy for short lived pleasures.

Forgive us, LORD. You are faithful and will not let us be tempted beyond our ability. Create in us a pure heart. Help us flee from sexual immorality. Heal us from a lingering sense of shame and guilt from our sexual brokenness.

For there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Fill us with the desires of the Spirit so we may triumph over the flesh. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
