Prayer of Confession

God of our salvation, through Jesus Christ’s self-offering on the cross, you granted eternal life. We who were far off have become members of your household. We belong to you, yet we get caught up in the world that judges others by what they own. Enable us to love you with our whole heart. Free us from clinging to our money and possessions. Use our worship today to remind us once again of the sacrificial love that you have shown us so that we may bring relief to people in need of physical and spiritual healing. We ask this for the sake of Christ, our risen Lord. Amen.
