Unison Prayer of Confession
Holy One, we look for you in the wrong places.
We put our trust in material things.
We worry about things we cannot change.
We wonder if you are even there at all.
For all the times we have doubted you, Lord, forgive us. For all the ways we have neglected your word and ignored your people, forgive us.
Do not be far from us, O God. There is no one else we can turn to for help. Renew our fickle hearts and help us put our trust in you.
