CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

O Lord, You are holy and righteous.  Your greatness and Your love are more than we can understand, and in your presence we become aware of how far short we fall from what You want us to be.  We don’t love You with all our heart and mind and strength.  We do not love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  We surely don’t love others the way Christ loves us.  We don’t always put You first.  We don’t always delight in prayer and hearing Your Word.  Forgive us, we pray.  Fill us with Your Spirit; turn our lives around; put us on the road You want us to follow; and help us live to Your glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
