Prayer of Confession of Sins and Mistakes
(Time for Personal Prayer and Reflection)
(Unison) Loving GOD, You come and comfort us. But we are reluctant to comfort others. You love us. But we have not been loving or accepting or welcoming. You forgive us, but we are not forgiving. We have a hard time forgiving ourselves and a harder time forgiving others. Forgive us for ignoring You and the needs around us. Forgive us for dwelling in the past and for living with regret and in remorse. Help us to feel forgiven and to be grateful forgivers. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray this. Amen.
