Prayer of Confession

Merciful God, we offer you our lives, full as they are of shadow and light, of kindness and apathy, of hope and despair.  Take what is broken and mend it; take what is wrong and right it; take what is destructive and disable it; take what is useless and make it useful.  Heal our sin, we pray.  Amen

MINISTRY OF THE WORD
