CALL TO CONFESSION

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Most holy and loving Father, we Your wayward children, make humble confession of our shortcomings and our sin. We have lived too much to ourselves and not with You. We have not loved our neighbors as we ought to, nor have we faithfully followed Jesus Christ in unselfish service. O Father God, pardon our offenses, and by Your Spirit within us, may we be moved to loving service to others and true devotion to Your Son, through whom we pray. Amen.
