Prayer of Brokenness

Here’s a prayer of confession inspired by Matthew 5: 21-37, Mark 12: 28-31 and other texts.  It was written by Rev. Mindi.

Prayer of Brokenness

Holy One,
we confess that we have been caught up in the ways of the world.
Instead of looking to commandments and rules as a way to guide our life,
we use them to punish and restrict others.
Forgive us for our judgments and misconceptions.
Forgive us for not working on ourselves, on our own lives.
Call us back to Your way of life,
a way of love, commitment, respect, and forgiveness.
Call us back to a way of life that honors You and creation,
and guides us to better love our neighbors as ourselves.
In the name of Jesus the Christ,
who ended sacrifice and death
and fulfilled the promise of new life, we pray. Amen.
