Prayers of Confession on the Ten Commandments

 

Heavenly Father, you are faithful, even when we are not. We look to the examples of our parents, and they often fall short. We, too, fall short when we consider the legacy we pass on to our children, families, and friends. Yet you are the continual provider. Please help us to live in such a way that those who come after us will be inspired by our legacies. Please forgive us when we do not live in such a way that people want to follow us. We confess our sins to you in silent confession, now…

Time of silent reflection.

Lord, forgive us for the times when we fail to follow your word. During this time, we silently reflect on the times when we’ve ignored your commandments in Scripture, the times when we have…

Failed to love those who make our lives difficult…

Sought our own will instead of yours…

Settled for complaining instead of seeking contentment…

Spoken in ways that dishonor you and others…

Let our eyes linger on things they should pass over…

Allowed our anger to get the best of us…

Lord, we thank you for your grace and patience with us. Amen.

Father God, You alone are holy. We revere You as our one true God. Your name is higher than any other name. However, we confess that we can use that Name frivolously, without concern for its supremacy. Lord, please forgive us for those times that we neglect to give You the honor that You are due. Help us to walk faithfully in a manner that shows our respect for Your holiness. We pray this humbly in the name of Jesus, Your Son.  Amen.
