Prayers of Confession on Fellowship

Inspired by John 1:5b-8

God, You are light and there is no darkness in You at all. We claim to have fellowship with You and with one another, yet because of our sin we walk in the dark shadows of isolation. We lie to ourselves and to You, and we do not live by Your truth. Forgive us, O God. May we walk in the light as You are in the light, so that we may have fellowship with You and with one another. Remind us that the blood of Jesus purifies us from sin. Through Your forgiveness we are filled with Your truth and light. Amen. 

Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church

Based on 1 John and John 20

God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. But often, we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness. By doing so, we lie and do not live out the truth. We too easily claim to be without sin and deceive ourselves. In this, the truth is far from us. We confess our claim to be in the light while we hate our brother and sister, that we are blinded by darkness. May you forgive us for our breaking of fellowship with you and others. Amen.
