I posted the Call to Worship we used the second-to-the-last Sunday in the Year of Mark, the shorter ending of the resurrection. This is the Prayer of Confession we used that Sunday. It would work well for Easter or even the Easter season.
Prayer of Confession • Resurrection • Mark (shorter ending)
Rev. Sarah Weaver
Resurrecting God, we give you great thanks for your love that is so powerful that it conquered death. The Easter story teaches us that death did not, does not and will not have the final word. Yet we confess that there are moments in our lives when this seems like a scary story to share with others; like the women who ran from the tomb afraid, we do not tell people about your redeeming grace. We hold back from talking about this life-changing story. Inspire us, O God, to boldly proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to a world that so desperately needs to hear it. Amen.
