Confession: Whenever We Forget

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

Prayer of Confession

Whenever self obscures the needs of others,
forgive us.
Whenever we forget who is our neighbor,
forgive us.
Whenever we pass by on the other side,
forgive us.
Whenever we forget to say ‘Well done!’
forgive us.
Whenever we forget to simply give thanks,
forgive us.
Whenever we forget the path that we tread,
forgive us.

For all those times we bring a tear to your eye,
bring us back into your forgiving arms
and teach us once again, your way.
Amen
