PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Based on Matthew 10:24-39)

Lord Jesus Christ, we call you Lord, yet it is too easy for us to worship other things, other activities, other relationships, other gods. You tell us we cannot serve two masters, yet we spend more time focusing our energies elsewhere,

diverting our time, our energy, our money, our attention away from you. Forgive us, gracious Savior, when our hearts are led astray, when we serve other gods and worship them. Strengthen us to set our faces toward Jerusalem, to take up our cross and follow you. We pray this, counting on your grace.

(Personal and Silent Prayers of Confession.)
