Advent: Confession of Sin

During this time of Advent, part of our prayer will be saying this corporate “Confession of Sin.”

 

Forgiving God, we confess to You that there are times when we would rather stay asleep in sin instead of awakening to live in your light.

We confess that we would rather be people who hold onto the works of darkness.

We do not trust that you protection is sufficient for us.

Instead, we quarrel, we are jealous and live only to gratify our own desires.

Give us courage, O God, to trust in your ways, in your peace, and in your good.

In Christ’s name we pray.
