Prayer of Confession: Judging Others By How They Meet Our Needs


God, we’re grateful that you’ve designed us for connection and relationship.
 It is a wonderful reminder that your very essence is love and communion.

But we often get off track. We tend to pin all of our hopes for happiness
on a person or people and we often judge people based on how
they can meet our needs.

When we do this, we take something that you designed and turn it into an idol.

Forgive us.

Help us to find our true joy and happiness by walking with you
through our everyday lives. Help us to stay plugged into your main frame.

From there, help us to bridge the distances between us,
to serve other’s needs and live life at its fullest.

Amen
