Thanksgiving Confession


Here’s a prayer of confession from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Prayer of Confession

Creator God, forgive our moments of ingratitude,
the spiritual blindness that prevents us
from appreciating the wonder that is this world,
the endless cycle of nature,
of life and death and rebirth.

Forgive us for taking without giving
reaping without sowing.

Open our eyes to see
our lips to praise
our hands to share.

May our feet touch lightly on the path we tread,
and our footsteps be worthy of following,
for they lead to you.
