A Prayer of Confession
« on: May 20, 2007, 04:38:16 PM »
Its true that many Christians and churches can be justly criticized for not practicing what Jesus preached, so I thought to share today's prayer from our local United Church of Christ

Brother Jesus, how often I fail to recognize you!  How often I fail to receive you when you come to me as a sister or a brother.  I am more comfortable with your divinity, more ready to accept you as the victorious Savior.  I am often afraid to touch you or look into your eyes when you confront me as a stranger, a prisoner, a malnourished child or a victim of AIDS.  And yet, there  you are in the flesh, waiting to receive me, waiting to show me your life and inviting me to share it.

Dear Jesus, forgive me and open my heart, my arms and my eyes so that I might recognize and receive you, especially among the chldren of Iraq and the Sudan and other ploaces of warfare and hatred.  Amen.
