Confession: Transfiguration

Here’s a prayer of confession for Transfiguration Sunday from Rev. Madison Shockley.  It was posted on the United Church of Christ website.

Confession for Transfiguration
(inspired by Mark 9: 2-9)

Forgive us, God, when we linger too long by the waters,
and on the mountain tops,
enthralled with the glory that flows from you.
When we fail to listen to your voice, leading and guiding us,
shake us from our contentment
and send us forward endowed with your power.   Amen.
