Prayer of Confession: United in Your Spirit

Here’s a prayer of confession on the theme of unity.


O God, we yearn to be a community of believers,
united in your Spirit.
And yet we are fraught with divisions:
denominational, political, theological.
We are weighed down by tensions and the things that break us apart.
Forgive us, great God, for this great sin.
Help us to learn to live in community together,
loving one another, in spite of our differences,
and respecting one another in everything that we do and say.
Help us to be as you call us, one in heart and mind.
Only through the grace of your son, Jesus Christ,
can we achieve this. Amen.
