Sunday May 21 Confession

PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Gracious God, we come to you with spirits needing to be humbled.
We too often think of ourselves as little gods, ignoring our own deficiencies and shortcomings.
Humble us, O Lord, and order our hearts toward you.

Forgive us our faults that we do not see.
Humble us, O Lord, and order our hearts toward you.

Keep us from willful sins, that they would not rule over us.
Humble us, O Lord, and order our hearts toward you.

The Lord is merciful, bearing with us in all things, forgiving us and renewing us.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
