Call to Confession
All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Let us confess our sin before God and seek God's mercy.
Prayer of Confession, P14C
Our foolishness has caught up with us, God.
Our lack of understanding has resulted in pain.
We honed our skills at doing evil,
and the result is catastrophic.
If only we had listened.
If only we had paid attention to your warnings.
Forgive us, we pray!
Open our eyes to our misdeeds
and help us to make amends.
Teach us your ways,
and lead us in paths of righteousness
for your name's sake.
Assurance of God's Grace
God has promised that when we confess our sin, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive us our sins, removing them as far as the east is from the west, and remembering them no more. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God!
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us also forgive one another. The peace of Christ be with you.
Please extend the peace of Christ to all whom you encounter this day~
