Prayers of Confession on Integrity

 

O God, you make covenants with your people, and you keep them from generation to generation. We receive this grace from you, but we are slow to extend it to others. We break our word; we bargain to get ourselves the best terms; and we find ourselves using deceit and treachery to get our way. All too often, we can’t be trusted. Thank you for never giving up on us, despite all the ways that we fall short. Make us keepers of our word. Equip us to say what we do, and to do what we say. Pardon us for our sins—these and all others—as we continue to confess in silence…

Silent Prayer

 In Jesus’ name, Amen.

O God, you make covenants with us and never break them. We find it much harder to keep our word. We offer promises we don’t intend to keep, and we make deals that we intend to break. All too often we are not trustworthy—not to you, not to our neighbors, and not even to those we love the most. We are sorry for the pain and disappointment that these sins cause. We need your Spirit to strengthen our will. Forgive us again, Lord Jesus, for all the ways we fall short of your desires for us, and hear us as we continue to pray in silence…

Silent Prayer

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
