Prayer of Confession (2) | Fifth Sunday in Lent (Year C)

Another wonderful piece of liturgy from Teri Peterson! And thanks to for sharing this with us!

One: Do you not perceive it
All: No, God, we confess that often we are blind to the new thing you are doing.
One: So often we are not looking, and sometimes we choose not to see.
All: We are comfortable with the way things are—we weary of the call to your newness.
One: Sometimes we see, but our hearts are hardened and we look away, making excuses.
All: But you call us to respond, to live in your kingdom now.
One: Forgive our status-quo caution, our focus on self-preservation rather than on your kingdom.
All: Forgive our narrow vision and insistence that you fit into our plans.
One: Open us to the movement of your Spirit,
All: and give us hearts ready to be generous in response.

sung: Kyrie Eleison
