Prayer of Confession (1) | Maundy Thursday (Year C)

From Feasting on the Word – Worship Companion, edited by Kimberly Bracken Long.

[allow a lengthy silence between biddings.]

Holy and gracious God,
our sin is too heavy to bear.
Trusting in your mercy,
we lay before you the truth of who we are.

We confess our failure to love as Christ loved…

We confess our covetousness and greed…

We confess our weakness before temptation…

We confess our frailty before the challenges of this world…

Merciful God, forgive us.
Heal us, and make us whole,
for the sake of your Son, our Savior,
Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.
