Here’s a prayer of confession from Rev. Mindi’s Rev-o-lution blog.
Prayer of Confession
Creator of the heavens and earth,
we confess that we do not always live into
the message of hope and salvation,
the promise of eternal life.
We live in ways that make the here and now
more important than the future.
We live in ways that put ourselves and our own success first
over the needs of others and the long-term needs of the world.
Forgive us for our selfish ways and call us into the path of Christ,
who humbled himself and gave himself up for us on the cross,
so that death might be no more
and that all can share in the joy of salvation and eternal life,
through Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon (from Romans 8:38)
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Amen and Amen!
