a lenten confessional prayer

In our confession, God,
may we acknowledge our participation in sin
as individuals
and as members of this our society—
acknowledge our participation
without being debilitated by it.
May we confront what is,
honestly,
with what You would have be—
with who and how You are,
and confess,
not in guilt and shame,
but in hope—
not overwhelmed,
but in the assurance of Your will and Your work.
This we pray in the name of the one
whose way we seek,
amen.
