Christ the King: Prayer of Confession   4 comments

From time to time I like to share prayers from the liturgical books I collect.  Earlier today I wrote a devotional for the Feast of Christ the King, so prayers for that occasion occupy my mind.  Thus I share with you, O reader, this excerpt from the Book of Common Worship (1993), of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Kenneth Randolph Taylor


Righteous God,

you have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all.

We confess that we have not bowed before him,

and are slow to acknowledge his rule.

We give allegiance to the powers of this world,

and fail to be governed by justice and love.

In your mercy, forgive us.

Raise us to acclaim as ruler of all,

that we may be loyal ambassadors,

obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.
