prayer of confession and forgiveness
Please take a moment to open your hearts to God, to the love and forgiveness of God.
Father, too often we praise you with empty hearts
We offer worship with our lips alone
We ignore the plight of our neighbour
We love ourselves more that we love another
We talk rather than listen
We often run before we pray
We are Sorry.
Help us to meet with you this morning and in the meeting be transformed
Let our praise be with full hearts
May our worship be from the soul
Help us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves
Help us to listen rather than talk
Enable us to pray first and run later
For these are the words we long to hear
I love you my child, you are forgiven.
