Confession: Restore What Has Been Broken

Here’s a unison prayer of confession from Rev. Mindi’s Rev-o-lution website.

Prayer of Confession

We bring our burdens and our sins to You, O Christ,
who bears the heavy load for us.

We place upon You our excuses, our shortcomings,
our anger and our desire,
knowing that You can remove these sins from us
and restore us to life.

We confess that we have gone astray.
We confess that we have not loved You fully
and have not loved our neighbor as ourselves.
We confess that we have not fully loved even our very selves.

Forgive us of our sins.
Help us to turn back to You.
Restore what has been broken,
transform what has been twisted,
find what has been lost,
so we may be the living, loving image of You in creation.
In Your precious name we pray. Amen.
