Prayer of Confession of Sins and Mistakes
(Time for Personal Prayer and Reflection)
(Unison) Heavenly Father, before You, we lower our heads as we confess our sins. We admit that we have too often forgotten that we are Yours. Frequently our worship is shallow. Our faith is empty. Our service is nonexistent. Too many times we have not worshipped You in spirit and in truth. Forgive us for following fake ideas that bring division and not unity. Forgive us and pour Your strength into us. Empty us of hate and fill us with clear minds and open hearts so we may show love and be bold witnesses to You in our world. In the powerful name of Jesus Christ we pray for forgiveness. Amen.
