Confession from Jeremiah 5:1-8

We run from You, great forgiver and lover.

We run through the streets terrified because we know

You seek truth, You seek justice, You seek humble hearts

so that You can forgive them.

but We have refused to live forgiven lives.

We have made our faces harder than rock

and We have no excuse. 

We are not the poor.

and yet, We are not truly rich.

We have all broken the yoke that was easy.

We have all torn the bonds that gave us freedom.

 

forgive us, we pray.

You can protect us from the Lion in the roaming in our forest,

those dark voices roaring in our minds.

You can lift us from the Leopard seeking to rip us to pieces,

those evils of self-indulgence and self-gratification.

You alone can feed our hungry spirits and heal our hurting souls.

 

Sisters and Brothers, the Great Forgiver calls us.

Because of God’s Love, the Living Bread descended to us in the desert.

Our cry of “Lord, help my unbelief” has been heard!

Here is the only proof we ever need.  God’s Love!

 

In the name of Jesus Christ, your sins are forgiven!

In the name of Jesus Christ, your sins are forgiven!

Hallelujah!  Amen!
