Prayer of Confession of Sins and Mistakes                         

    Time for Silent Personal Prayer and Reflection
(Unison) Gracious and loving God, open our hearts so that we are able to admit to You the fullness of our lives - that which is beautiful and good, and that which is hurtful and hateful.  We confess that we do not follow Jesus in all that we do.  We love with condition.  We judge and condemn.  We cast the first stone and keep the logs in our own eyes.  We do not turn to You as the source of our healing.  Forgive us, we pray.  Forgive our sins and empower us to be imitators of Christ in love and service. Amen.
