Prayer of Confession: Good Friday

Here’s a prayer of confession for Good Friday from Rev. Gord on his blog, Worship Offerings.

Prayer for Assurance of Grace

God of Passion,
on this day of betrayal and death,
we remember those times we have been part of the crowd
seeking our best interest over what is right and good.

God of Fidelity,
on this day of fear and denial,
we remember those times when we choose the path of safety
over loyalty to your Way.

God of Constant Presence,
on this day of despair and loss,
we remember the ways we have wandered away
from your presence,
only to complain that we are abandoned.

God of the Cross,
for all the ways we have missed the mark,
all the ways we have come up short,
forgive us.

Through your Grace bring us back into relationship.
Help us find the path again.

...time of silent prayer...

Even in the face of betrayal and rebellion,
even in the face of death and denial,
even in the face of fear and despair,
God's Grace knows no bounds.

We ARE forgiven,
we ARE called back into relationship, 
we ARE set back on the path that leads to the Realm of God.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
