Prayers of Confession on Parents

O Good and Loving God, You call us to honor, love, and revere not just our parents, but all whom You have placed in our lives with Your authority. Yet we; rarely give honor to those deserving of honor. Instead, we fight and fail to love as You have loved us. When we have authority, we misuse and abuse it. Worst, we reject Your authority and seek to live our lives our way. We follow ourselves, not Your Son, Jesus. Forgive us and renew us. Send us Your grace and mercy, and enable us to share it with others, even with those in authority over us.Through Christ we pray. Amen.
