CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Almighty and merciful God, we know that when we offend another, we offend You. We are aware that we have often allowed the shadow of hate to cloud our souls, hiding the light from our unseeking eyes. We have said unpleasant and hurtful things to our brothers and sisters when they failed to live up to our expectations. Grant that we might find that spark of love that ever burns within us, the love that You have shown to us even when we failed You. Fan the embers of that love until it roars again in flames of love, peace and reconciliation. Forgive us our sins and help us to forgive those who have sinned against us.

Lead us into new life through Your Son, Jesus Christ, who died for the sins of all. Amen.
