Here’s a prayer of confession for the season of Advent. It was written by Bruce Prewer.
Prayer of Confession for Advent
(inspired by John 1: 10-11, Romans 13:11-14)
How many times, Lord Jesus,
have you come to us unwelcomed?
How often have you
visited yet we have been too busy to notice,
spoken yet we have been too full of ourselves,
Change all our insensitive habits
and help us to do better during this Advent.
Make us so sensitive to your immediate comings
in the ups and downs of each ordinary day
that we shall be well prepared
to welcome your Final Coming
as a consummation of love and joy.
For your love’s sake.
