Prayer of Confession

God of grace and God of glory, forgive us when we forget that nothing is able to separate us from your love in Jesus Christ our Lord.  We confess that the distractions of life and the fear or death cause us to lose our trust in you.  Too often we live and act as if you are against us rather than for us, Loving God, forgive our sins.  Help us to put our trust in you through Jesus Christ, who died, who was raised, who is at your right hand in glory. Amen
