Prayer of Confession

Most High God, hear our prayer.  We know there is much that clamors to possess us power and addiction; false peace and false community; fear and anger.  We know that sometimes we say yes to these forces.  We know, too, that you are stronger than even hate and fear and prejudice.  We as for your help.  We ask for your healing, we ask for your forgiveness.  We ask that you make us whole, through the love of Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen
