Prayer of Confession: Trinity Sunday

Here’s a prayer of confession for Trinity Sunday, the first Sunday after Pentecost.

Confession for Trinity Sunday

O God, even as we celebrate your unity,
we know that sometimes
we forget the beauty of your three persons.
We hold to your transcendent life as Creator
and keep at a distance the challenges of Christ.
We bow before your glory
and keep your humanness away
from the reality of our own lives.

(Silent reflection)

Forgive us, Jesus Christ.
Guide and guard us, Holy Spirit,
and go on creating within us, Creator God.

If we are tempted to think that we know
all that there is to know, Holy Trinity,
closing ourselves off from ideas which others offer
and neglecting to search for even deeper truths:
Forgive us, Jesus Christ.
Guide and guard us, Holy Spirit,
and go on creating within us, Creator God.
This we pray in faith. Amen.
