Prayers of Confession and Assurance

March 3rd, 2011

Prayer of Confession

We confess, O God, that we are attracted to false gods and easy answers in life. We are vulnerable to temptations that could damage us in ways that are not obvious. Forgive us that sin that draws us like moths to a flame. Restore us and fill us with godly resolve. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Words of Assurance

Hear the good news: Christ died for our sins and rose again that God may free us from the tyranny of judging others to live fully in the power of God’s grace. In the name of Jesus Christ, God forgives your sins and offers you a transformed future. Live fully into God’s grace. Amen.


From Prayers for Lent and Holy Week, by David N. Mosser. (Just in Time series, Abingdon Press).
