Last Minute Advent Prayer of Confession

Hi friends and Happy Tuesday! I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired with any of the Prayers of Confessions in my liturgy resources, so I put this one together very quickly this morning for worship on Sunday.  If you’re scrambling and need something completely unedited (but also pretty real to where I’m at!), feel free to use it!



God – Emmanuel:  As we patiently, but sometimes also impatiently, await your arrival in our midst, we confess that there are moments when we lose sight of what we are waiting for. Often distracted or discouraged by the quest for quick fixes and glimpses of normal during this time of distancing, we forget to keep our eyes on the manger – and the hope and the promise that will be found there on Christmas. Help us to let go of the things that are pulling us away from you during a time when we need to draw close to you. Give us the strength and the courage to proclaim the Good News of the birth of our Savior and the conquering love coming into our lives. Amen.
