Prayer of Confession

Gracious and Loving God, we come into Your presence asking for Your forgiveness.  Forgive us for aspirations that never get translated into action and for promises that we have not kept.  Forgive us for having good intentions that were not fulfilled and for the good deeds that we never got around to doing.  Grant us a new vision and help us to move from intention to action.  Help us, Lord to keep our eyes on You and to be faithful in all that we say and do.  In Christ’s Name we pray.  Amen
