The prayer life of a Christian can sometimes become tiresome, especially if you don’t feel like praying. We hope our simple prayers centered around everyday life will provide some guidance and help you grow in your prayer life


Now What Do I Do?

We all make mistakes. Lots of mistakes. Like so many mistakes that we can’t count them. And mistakes can embarrass us to the point of not wanting to deal with them. They can bring shame, fear, and a sense of condemnation. But for Christians, mistakes NEVER have the last word. We serve a God who is abundant in loving kindness, steadfast love, and extravagant grace. His kindness leads us to repentance—not his anger or his frustration—his kindness. 

And so we can bring our mistakes to God as a place that brings healing and joy. And after we confess? Well, that’s what this prayer is all about. 

“Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance, and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4).

A Prayer After Confession

Merciful Father, who is generous with unmerited favor and steadfast in love, thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you for turning me toward you with your soft hand of kindness, and for covering not only my sin but also the sins of the whole world. Finish this work you’ve begun in me by removing my shame and fear. And when I make my next mistake, lead me back to joy-filled confession that brings healing. Amen. 


The role of prayer in Christian life is powerful and helps us in our mission to creatively explore how we connect with God in the ordinary, extraordinary, everyday moments of life. For more everyday prayers, visit this page!
