CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Almighty God, who’s Son was met with palms and with a cross in the same city: we confess with shame that our hearts having done Him reverence in worship, have in conduct cast Him out. We have called Him “Lord”, but have not done the things which He said. His face is hidden from us by our sins. Pardon our offenses. Cleanse us from our iniquity. Restore our sight, and let our true reverence hereafter be known by our willing obedience to the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
