Prayer of Confession

O Holy God, we know we have fallen short.  We turn our backs when we cold embrace.  We remain silent when we could speak.  We speak when we cold listen.  We close the door when we could fling it wide open.  We judge when we cold seek understanding.  We cling when we could give.  Forgive us, O God, for being so very human at times, and help us to continue to grow into the people you created us to be, through Christ our Lord. Amen
