Prayer of Confession – 7th Feb 2021

Father, we lift our hearts to You. Perhaps there was a time, O Lord, when our hearts burned with desire for You. Perhaps there was a time, when we were utterly resolved to pursue You.

But Lord, does that flame still burn? Do we still hold to our resolve? Can we still declare unflinching loyalty to You? Or do our desires now centre upon things like comfortable living, self-fulfilment, or ensuring a stable future?

Lord, only You know. Forgive us. We need radical transformation. We need a deep heart-surgery. Renew us! Revive a fresh fire within us! Restore to us an all-consuming joy for Your name.

We love You – and we shall yet love You. We say this with confidence, because we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
