Ps 119:97-104 Confession

Holy, Holy, Holy, God, we confess that, as Jesus charged, we have loved darkness rather than light. We are still tempted to love the wrong things, and the result is sin. Our adoration of lesser things means we have given little thought to you and to your Word. Change our affections so that we love you and your law. Give us faith that seeks greater understanding. Root out the pride of our hearts that says we do not need you. Where we find sin sweet, make it bitter to us. Send your Spirit to enable us to truly echo the Psalm in saying, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.” We ask for forgiveness and transformation through the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ, amen. (Based on Psalm 119:97-104 and John 3)
