Here’s a prayer of confession from Rev. Scott Mckenna. It was posted on the Weekly Worship page of the Church of Scotland website.
(inspired by Mark 1:9-15 and parallel passages)
we bring to this sanctuary
and place on this table,
our burdens and brokenness,
our self-image bruised and hurting,
our fears, shame, doubts and anxieties,
the raw materials we ask You to bless and change,
that in our dark tunnels
we may begin to see light
and in our desert experiences
we may find You.
