Prayers of Confession on Searching


Eternal and Generous God, every good gift comes from You. Your generosity is expressed best Through Jesus, the Crucified and Risen One, Who gave Himself for us. We acknowledge we often doubt. Your willingness to give what we need. We do not ask. We do not seek. We do not knock. We think You don’t want to be bothered Because we often don’t want to be bothered By the needs of others. Forgive us for our lack of trust In Your generous nature. Forgive us for our lack of faith In Your sufficient supply. Forgive us for our lack of desire To give to others as You have given to us. Reorient our lives in Your way. Renew us for faithful service in Your Kingdom. We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Shepherd God, forgive us for going astray, again and again and again. You seek us out, always looking for us no matter where we are and no matter what we have done. Sometimes we take you for granted and forget to say thank you.” Other times we are fully embraced by your love but don’t reality it could possibly be true.   Forgive us, O God, for these and all of our sins, as we confess in silence…   

Silent Prayer 

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
