CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Merciful God,
     we confess that we desire what is not your will.
We fear failure
     and cling to unquestioned habits.
We are truly sorry and repent
     of what we have done
     and what we have not done.
Show us the path of your prophetic way.
Open our eyes to new ventures.
Help us love our neighbors as ourselves.
Forgive us and renew us,
     in the name of life abundant,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
