When I preached on Jesus’ burial, I wrote this Prayer of Confession. I think it would work well during a Service of Tenebrae, but especially a Holy Saturday service, if you do one.
Prayer of Confession • Jesus’ Burial
Rev. Sarah Weaver
Powerful and almighty God, we give you thanks for the transformative work that you have done in this world. As we wait for resurrection in this story, we confess that there are times in our own lives when we lack patience; when we do not trust that resurrection is coming, that redemption is possible and that grace will prevail. Infuse, within us, the fortitude to simply be in your presence – and to trust that you will carry us through whatever we might face on the journey that lies ahead. Amen.
