Prayer of Confession
Merciful and compassionate Lord, we confess to You this day that we allow our hearts to grow calloused. We see need around us and become numb to it. There are those who look to us to show Your compassion, but we look away from them. Forgive our hard-hearted tendencies and our self-centered ways. By Your Spirit, shape our hearts to break at the things that break Your heart. Mold our souls to be people of compassionate action, even as we continue our confession in silence…
Just as families keep in touch about joys and sorrows, our church family at Peachtree wants to do the same. During your prayers this week, we ask you to lift up these people to God.
