Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Luke 1: 46-55)

Holy God, you promised to do great things for us,
yet we do not trust you.
You extend your mercy to us,
yet we do not trust you.
You lift up the humble,
you fill the hungry with good things,
and yet we still do not trust you.
Forgive us, and help us to trust in the promises you have given us.
In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
