Prayer of Confession for Father’s Day

(Modeled after the Lord's Prayer)
by The Rev. Nathan Decker

Our Father in Heaven,
Hear us on Earth who struggle to imitate your love.


Your name is holy, above all others.
Help us to create sacred space through justice, mercy, and love
So that your kingdom may exist here as it does in Heaven.

Give us this day what we need
and guide us to give what we don't need and hold on to.

Forgive us our sins
as we forgive our friends… and our enemies.

And lead us to the paths of light and hope
Protect us from the shadow of lies and despair
For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and glory
Forever and ever, Amen.




The Rev. Nathan Decker is the pastor of the South Sussex Charge of the Petersburg District of the Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Nathan has great love for the diversity and inspiration of God's creative nature in worship
