Call to Confession      Joel 2:12-13

“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.

Let us confess our sins

Prayer of Confession  (unison)

Almighty God, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus; We acknowledge that we are unworthy of Your redeeming grace.  We have not believed Your promises; Nor trusted in our living Lord.  Through disappointment of mind and dejection of spirit; Our hearts have not burned within us as we have heard His Word.  We have not trusted in His redeeming power; And have been overcome of evil.  We have forgotten the glad tidings of His victory over death; And have not known the things that belong to our peace.  But now in penitence we come to You; Beseeching Your forgiveness.  Mercifully grant us absolution from all our sins; And restore unto us the joy of Your salvation; For Jesus Christ’s sake, our only Mediator and Advocate.

Private Confession
