Prayer of Confession based on Psalm 121
But we don't always give you the credit that you deserve. Instead, we create idols - of status, of power, of wealth, of our careers, of our children, of our significant others. And then we look to these idols to be our primary guides, to make us whole and give our lives meaning.
Only you deserve that role.
Forgive us. We know that when we confess our failures to you, you promise to not hold them against us, but instead move towards us in love and grace, where we can find peace.
