Prayer of Confession: As You Have Loved

Here’s a prayer inspired by Jesus’ teaching about loving our neighbors. It was posted on the PCUSA website.

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

Almighty God, 
you love us, but we have not loved you;
you call, but we have not listened.
We walk away from neighbors in need, 
wrapped up in our own concerns.
We have gone along with evil, 
with pride, quarrelling, and divisiveness.

Holy God, help us to face up to ourselves,
so that, as you move toward us in mercy,
we may repent, turn to you, and receive mercy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
