A confession.

Gracious and merciful God,
We confess that although we willingly declare that “Jesus is King,”
we often fail to place him as first priority in our lives.
Many times we fail to represent and demonstrate his love and mercy to our neighbors, friends, family, or coworkers.
We seldom steward our time or our gifts to advance His kingdom.
Instead, we grant our allegiances to the fleeting pleasures and material goods of this world.
In your mercy, hear our confession and forgive our sin.
Grant us the humility to bow before you, the Ruler of all nations,
so that we may be loyal servants in your kingdom.
Through your son, Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
