Day of Prayer…

Posted: May 5, 2016 in Uncategorized

We repent.
We remember.
We choose.

We repent of our sin and our selfishness.
We remember that you, Jesus, are the only medicine for our broken lives, broken hearts and broken world.
We choose to lay our failures and fears at the foot of the cross.

We repent for creating a culture of stubborn self-reliance and calling it good.
We remember that we desperately need you.
We choose to lean into you.

We repent for the times that we have listened to the wrong voices.
We remember that Jesus is the Good Shepherd who calls His sheep by name.
We choose to listen to His voice.

We repent for the times that we have shown contempt instead of compassion.
We remember that we are the hands of Christ to a hurting, hungry world.
We choose to be salt and light.

We repent for the times we have misrepresented you.
We remember that you are a God of mercy and justice.
We choose to love the way that you have loved us.

We repent for refusing to believe big and trust you.
We remember that you are unlimited. NOTHING is impossible and impossible is NOTHING for You.
We choose to expect the miraculous.

We repent for choosing comfort over calling.
We remember to serve you Jesus with abandon.
We choose to take up our cross and follow you into the wide open unknown places.

We repent of forgetting the things that matter.
We remember who and whose we are.
We choose you.

We repent.
We remember.
We choose.
