Prayer of Confession

Gracious Father, we seek your blessing, knowing that we have not earned it.  In our faults, we seek your blessing.  In our sins, we seek your forgiveness.  In our weakness we seek your strength.  In our sorrow, we seek your consolation.  In our trials, we seek your justice.  In our pain, we seek your peace.  In our pain, we seek your peace. Hear our prayers, O Lord, and make our hearts new.  Amen
