A Prayer of Confession for Luke 24:13-35

            Holy and merciful God,
            We come before you as a broken people.
            Our sinful thoughts and deeds obscure our focus
            Upon your triumphant “yes!” of Easter.
            Though your grace surrounds us everywhere we go,
            Though you walk with us on our journey,
            Though you take, break, bless, and give,
            We too often say “no!” to your merciful invitation
            To live freely for you and one another.
            O Lord, forgive us our sins.
            God of Easter,
            Help us to recognize your risen-ness
            Guide us that we might walk with you
            Cleanse us that we might no longer be slaves to sin
            Come to us in the breaking of the bread
            Come to us as we are
but leave us not as we were;
In your mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.
