Wednesday Worship Pieces: Prayer of Confession

[I know, I know . . . it’s Saturday.  Guess I don’t have the delayed publication feature quite mastered.]

This prayer is based on the Gospel reading for the third Sunday of Lent  (Year A): John 4:5-42.  As always, you are welcome to use this in your worship setting.

the brittle words we have thought and spoken . . .
the relationships that are crumbling . . .
the arid perspective that centers on self . . .
the cracked and jagged edges of our world . . .

Hear our confession, O Christ, and rain down your mercy upon us. [Silence]
