Prayer for Reconciliation to God
Holy Lord, who sent your only Son to save us, I pray today to be reconciled to you. For if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come. I pray to live in Christ, to let go of my worldly desires and instead follow where Jesus leads. May I be made new in Christ, to be reconciled to you, O Father, and be forgiven of my sins through your great mercy and grace. Amen.
Scripture for the Week
2 Corinthians 5:16-21 (NIV)
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
