Here is the Prayer of Confession I will be using for worship this week! It was written with Reformation Sunday in mind, but also carries themes of unity, covenant and love. Enjoy!
Prayer of Confession | Reformation Sunday, Unity, Covenant, Love
Sarah E. Weaver (C) 2011
Loving God, whose gentle touch can carefully guide the restoration of unity: Help us along our journey towards peace. Forgive us for the times when we do not do the hard work required to honor our covenants with one another. Always allow your touch to be stronger than the resistance that we might give to it. Open our eyes to the cloud of witnesses who have come before us and worked towards a shared vision of shalom. Steer us to learn from both their successes and their failures. Do not give up on us, even when we stumble. Help us to love others as you love us – now and always. Amen.
