Prayer of Confession

 

Dear Lord, as we partake from your heavenly bread and wine, we come humbly before you to confess our sins to you:

  • We ask forgiveness for our selfish attitudes and behaviors.
  • We ask forgiveness for envying others instead of blessing them in Christ’s name.
  • We ask forgiveness for exploiting others rather than serving them.
  • We ask forgiveness for our shallow and materialistic attitudes and behaviors.
  • We ask forgiveness for not properly representing Christ to a world filled with hunger for spiritual food.

Forgive us, o Lord, and free us to joyful service in the community into which you have sent us.
