Prayer of Confession

Holy God, You sent Your Son Jesus to be our peace, and yet we know so much strife and war, in the world, in our communities, in our churches, and within ourselves.  Untie the knots of envy and disappointments that dwell in our hearts.  Loosen our grasp on worldly things, that we might open our hands to holy things.  Turn us around to You, and make us whole, we pray.  Amen
