Confession: Loving Our Neighbours

Here’s a prayer of confession from the Baylor University website.

Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Luke 10: 25-37, Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:30-31)

we confess that we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
You embodied yourself in a human body.
You lived out your life among those who were sick—
physically, mentally, and spiritually.
You reached out to touch them,
spoke words to comfort them,
performed miracles to heal them.

Heal us we pray from the sin-sickness that grips us.
Heal us and help us to work for the healing and wholeness
of our neighbors as well.

Just speak the word of your peace, and we shall be healed.
