Prayer of Confession: Life for All

Here’s a prayer of confession inspired by John 14:19. It was posted on the Christian Aid website.

Prayer
'...because I live, you also will live.' (John 14:19)

Loving God, 
in Jesus you offer life to the world 
and love to its people. 
When we see life only for ourselves, 
forgive us. 
Help us to hear your transforming love 
speaking to us of respect, dignity and worth, 
telling us that we are loved 
and that we are to love one another. 
In the knowledge of this love 
work through us to bring your justice to the world, 
in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
