Prayer of Confession

Gracious God, we confess that we often lose sight of the hope we have in you.  Our failures an d self-doubts preoccupy our thoughts and paralyze us from your work.  We feel at times intimidated and useless in making a difference  in the world.  We pray for your forgiveness and we ask for your help so that we might be steadfast and faithful to you.  Help us focus on what you have given us in Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen
