Prayer of Confession of Sins and Mistakes
Time for Silent Personal Prayer and Reflection
(Unison) Loving GOD; You give us fresh starts and new beginnings but too many times we prefer to live in the past. Before You we confess that often we look backwards nostalgically thinking of our glory days. When we are beset by discouragement we tend to look backwards and not forward. Forgive us when things don't go our way and we concentrate only on the past. Forgive us when we are assaulted by disappointments and we focus on previous achievements. Forgive us for living in the past and not in the present. We pray to be forgiven, filled with grace and given a new beginning. This we pray in the powerful name of Jesus Christ. AMEN.
