Prayer of Confession for World Communion Sunday

Join us this Sunday as we celebrate the Lord’s Supper with believers around the world:

Leader: Let us confess our sin to God and one another:
Almighty God, from the ends of the earth
you have gathered us around Christ’s holy table.
People: We come to the feast together.
Leader: Have mercy on your church, troubled and divided.
People: Renew us and make us one.
Leader: Forgive us for stifling your praise with our complaints.
People: Renew us and make us one.
Leader: Forgive us for silencing the songs of others with our pride.
People: Renew us and make us one.
Leader: Forgive us for our warring chants that destroy humanity.
People: Renew us and make us one.
Leader: Free us from every sin that divides your children.
People: Free our tongues to offer you the sacrifice of praise
in union with Christ’s offering for us. Amen.

Silence

Leader: Through Christ we are forgiven and freed;
In Christ we are reconciled and renewed.
People: Thanks be to God. Alleluia! Amen!
