Prayer of Confession: Psalm 30

Here’s a prayer of confession inspired by Psalm 30.  It was written by Rev. Elsa Peters.

Prayer of Confession (based on Psalm 30)

O Healing One, we cry to you for help.
We choose to listen for your voice above all others.
Be gracious to us for we have made mistakes.
We have made choices that have harmed our relationships
with your children and your created world.
Hear us, Healing God, as we move next to you in silent prayer.
Extended prayerful silence.

Lord’s Prayer

Words of Assurance (based on Psalm 30 and Mark 1:40-45)

When we are silent, God moves!
Praise our Healing God with all your soul!
Give thanks forever for God has chosen you!
