Prayer of Confession
(based on 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10)
God of Grace,
we know that you have chosen us,
but we often forget that you have also chosen others.
You call us to be imitators of Christ,
yet many times we are imitators of the world.
You challenge us to turn from our idols,
but we are tempted to turn back to them again and again.
Rescue us, Lord, from ourselves.
Show us your way.
Guide our every action,
that we may live as you call us to live.
