A Prayer for Thursday, January 1, 2015

Eighth Day of Christmas

O God,

We praise you that your Son was named Jesus, which means “Savior”;
we thank you that he came to save us from our sins.

From what do we still need saving?

Do we still need saving

from pride,
from fear,
from anger,
from resentment,
from greed,
from prejudice,
from judgmentalism,
from envy,
from apathy,
from selfishness,
from arrogance,
from isolation,
from sloth,
from inattention,
from shortsightedness,
from jingoism,
from narrow-mindedness,
from ignorance?

Help us to recognize and to confess
that from what we still need saving.

Then, through Jesus Christ our Lord, save us!
