Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Mark 10:35-45)

Lord Jesus Christ,
we expect that you will do what we want,
whatever we ask.
We want places of honor and all the glory.
We want to be great.
We want to be first.

But you, O Christ, are servant of all.

Forgive our brazenness.
Forgive our self-importance.
Forgive us.
Teach us to be humble.
Teach us to be more like you
