Prayer of Confession for June 30
Searcher of hearts,
You know how often we confuse Your guidance
with our own desires.
We prefer our own choices and avoid Your nudges
that urge us to be more inclusive in our love and
more generous with our time and possessions.
But it is in You, Loving Father,
that we find our true freedom.
Forgive our shortsightedness.
Renew our spirits to unite with Your Spirit
so we might live joyful lives.
Slow us down.
Bend us close to you
so we may be renewed in Your love and
recommitted to Your justice and peace.
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen
