Mark A. Miller

1 John 4:7-16 Elder C. Gresham Bayne Page 241 in the pew Bible

Prayer of Confession (In unison, followed by silent prayer) God of compassion and mercy, you sent us your Son as the savior of the world, and told us to love one another as much as you loved us. Yet we struggle to love each other. We have a hard time loving those who are not like us, who disagree with us, or ask us to face the truth about ourselves. You told us to love one another, because love is from God, but we often do not love those we think are dirty, hungry, lost or undesirable. It is written that perfect love casts out fear, and yet we are afraid, afraid for our safety, our wallets, and how others perceive us. Forgive us, God, and show us how to love the way you command us to love. Release us from our judgement and our fear. Open our hearts so that we might receive your perfect love for us, and offer it to the world. (silent prayer) Amen.
