Here is a simple prayer of confession of sin to reflect upon and pray through:
God, our heavenly Father,
thank you for sending Your Son
to pour out a crimson flood to make sweet
earth’s bitter waters of evil, injustice, hatred, and revenge.
Never was any man more unjustly sinned against.
His life was one of grief, hostility and rejection.
Forgive us for our refusal to walk in His steps.
Pardon us for thinking that we, your servants,
are above You, our Lord.
Transform us so that we might become
great forgivers and lovers of others,
even of those who wish and do us harm.
For we pray in the powerful name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.
