The Prayer of Confession

Forgiving God, we confess how we have rebelled against you.  We have allowed doubts and fears to hold us back from the freedom to which you have called us in Christ Jesus our Lord.  We have been quick to blame others for our weakness and slow to accept responsibility for ourselves.  Forgive us, and grant us your peace through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
