Prayer of Confession
Almighty God, we are haunted by images of all the
ways we refused to live within your kingdom.

We remember times when someone wasn't beautiful
and we looked away; when someone stretched out a
hand for help and we pretended not to notice.

We remember times when truth was on our tongues
and we swallowed instead of speaking, or we spoke
the truth without love in our hearts.

Forgive us for refusing to do your will, for requiring
others to wait for words of mercy, kindness and love.

Free us from the guilt of past deeds and renew our
strength that we might serve your Kingdom on earth.

Through Christ we pray.

AMEN.
