Lakeside Church


As a church family, we hold each other in prayer. Now more than ever, we are available to pray for and with each other. There is no greater honour.

Our Prayer Team consists of Prayer Ministers who will pray with you when you need/want prayer. They are available in person on Sunday morning or by phone throughout the week. To request a phone call, text 226-400-2189 or fill out the prayer form.

Prayers of Confession

God, I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word and deed, by what I have done, and by what I have left undone. I have not loved you with my whole heart, I have not loved my neighbours as myself. I am truly sorry and I humbly repent. Amen.

Adapted from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer

Oh God, I have hurt others, and I have been hurt. I have presumed upon others, and I have been presumed upon. I have taken others for granted, and I have been taken for granted. I have dishonoured others, and I have been dishonoured. As I receive your forgiveness for my wrongs (it helps to name them), I extend forgiveness to others who have wronged me. Thank you for your mercy and forgiveness. Amen.

Jesus, my sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo. Forgive what my lips tremble to name and what my heart can no longer bear. Set me free from a past that I cannot change. Open me to a future in which I can be changed, and grant me grace to become more and more like you. Amen.
