Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Romans 13: 11-14)

Holy One,
You call us to wake from sleep,
to become aware to our surroundings.
The dawn of a new time of preparation is upon us.
Forgive us when sleepiness takes its toll,
when our discussions become battles,
when our judgement and self-judgement outweigh our faith.
Let us put on the light of Christ
and live as You have called us
in respect, in mutual dialogue, and in healthy living.
Help us so that everything we do reflects Christ’s light. Amen.
