Prayers of Confession on Legalism

Gracious Father, too often we base our worth on our performance. We believe if we do well, your love grows, and if we falter, your love lessens. Our God, how far this is from the truth. We confess our desire to earn your love rather than receive it as a free gift. Teach us to receive your unconditional love so that we might be ready to love others as you love us.
