Prayer of Confession: Joel 2: 28-29

Here’s a corporate act of confession inspired by Joel 2: 28-29.  It was written by Katherine Hawker.

Corporate Confession
(inspired by Joel 2: 28-29)

The Spirit comes with fire of justice
and we offer the extinguisher of complacency.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy
upon us.

The Spirit comes with the rain of love
and we offer an umbrella of reserve.

Christ have mercy,
Christ have mercy,
Christ have mercy upon us.

The Spirit comes bearing fresh winds of change
and we close the windows.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy upon us.

Words of Assurance

Hear the great good news of our faith:
The Spirit is alive!

Breathe, children of God,
breathe the fresh winds of the Spirit.

Taste, children of God,
taste the quenching waters of God’s love.

Touch, children of God,
touch the heat of God’s passion for justice.
