Prayer of Confession: Prodigal Son

Here’s a prayer of confession and commitment inspired by the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15: 11-32). 


Prayer of Confession

(inspired by Luke 15: 11-32)


How easily we leave your side, Lord God,

for a place far away.

We are blind in our darkness,

so open our eyes to our sins.


Unless you strengthen our spirits

and create our hearts anew,

we cannot make the journey home.


Guide us to your welcoming arms;

to the music and the dancing,

for we are easily lost,

and only you, our Father,

can find us.
