A Prayer of Confession










Heavenly Father


If we say that we have no sin,

we deceive ourselves

and the truth is not in us.

But if we confess our sins,

God, who is faithful and just,

will forgive our sins

and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Let us confess our sins.


God of truth and love

be merciful to us,

as we claim your promised forgiveness

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


God, who is faithful and just,

assures us of pardon and peace.


Amen. Thanks be to God.
