Prayer of Confession (based on James 2)

Gracious God,
we confess to you that we have often played favorites.
We have made distinctions and have honored those with wealth or power or prestige more than the poor or powerless.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves,
and have failed to keep your holy laws in our hearts.
We have professed our faith,
but have failed to demonstrate that faith in our actions.

Forgive us, O God; show us your mercy,
Help us to live our lives as your children
and as disciples of your Son, Jesus Christ
in whose name we pray. Amen.
