Prayers of Confession on the Royal Priesthood

Almighty God, from the very beginning, You have designed us for glorious work. You have given us Your Spirit and spread before us limitless resources. Because You have made us a royal priesthood, we now find ourselves perfectly matched to meet the needs of the world. Sadly, we confess that we fall into bad habits. We are often lazy and self-centered. We grumble and complain. We lie and cheat. We tear one another down. We deceive and seek our own glory rather than the glory that comes from You alone. Forgive us, we pray, dear God. Help us to work in the world in a way that glorifies You in all that we do. Restore us to our true identity as Your ambassadors. All of this we ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
