Prayer of Confession

(inspired by Luke 4:14-30)


God, we do not understand Jesus, the prophet.

We do not want to get our hands dirty with the poor,

the oppressed, the prisoners.

Forgive us for being insulated and isolated.

Open our hearts to the poor

and help us to love them as you love them,

working to bring in the good news of the reign of God.

In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
