prayer of confession for a new year

January 7, 2010

Via the open sourcebook:

Lord God,
You are faithful, loving, worthy of trust and praise.
We are disloyal, hateful and deserve death.
Lord, we forget that you are our true source of hope and strength.
We are tempted to lean upon our own power to accomplish good and to break the power of sin.
Lord we will fail without your help.
Forgive us for consulting the wisdom of man before bowing before you in prayer.
Forgive us for relying on the perishable
rather than your enduring word.
Help us to trust in your son Jesus, and find rest in the promises that were made in His blood.
In his name we plead for mercy, Amen.

By Jamie Barnes, as used by Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, KY on January 3rd, 2010
