CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

In thought, word, and deed, O God, we have sinned against You. We have not kept our hands clean, nor our minds pure. Our strength has been squandered in pursuit of things, rather than in service to You. We have not loved You with all our hearts. Hear our confession, O Father, and grant us forgiveness through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
