Prayer of Confession from Sept. 15, 2013
Forgive us as we confess…
We have been ungrateful recipients of the vast treasure
that is Your Holy Scripture.
We have heard Your Word
but not obeyed it,
Believed the right things
but not lived them,
Claimed to know You
but not followed the life You modeled,
Called to trust You,
we have not loosened the grip of control,
Invited to abide,
we have chased our own pursuits,
Given the Sabbath for rest,
we have ignored it.
Lord, have mercy and forgive us.
Bring us to new life
in and through Your Son, Our Lord and Savior.
