Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Deuteronomy 30: 15-20)

Gracious and Holy God,
For those times we have chosen death over life for ourselves,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have chosen death over life for others,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have chosen not to receive your blessings,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have prevented others from receiving your blessings,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For each time we have made the easy choice of law
over the hard choice of love,
Forgive us. [Silence]
O God of mercy,
Hear our prayers. [Silence]
