CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Almighty God, humbly we bow before You and confess our sins; we, Your children, have lifted up our own hearts in pride and have disdained Your providence. We have forgotten that we are little. We have been heedless that we are Yours. We have presumed authority as though the days were ours and the years our handiwork. We have obstructed Your love, we have broken Your laws, but You, O Lord, have mercy upon us. Pardon our offenses and restore our souls, return us in humility to Your rule and in penitence to Your love. And let Your Holy Spirit dwell within us both now and evermore. Amen.
