Prayer of Confession for All Saints Sunday

Leader:  Let us prepare to take our place at the table of grace

with servants among us and saints above us,

united in the joy of Christ our Hope:

People:  Everlasting God, whose timeless grace unites us,

                forgive the ways we have sinned against our ancestors.

                We failed to follow their example and heed their wisdom.

                Free us from the legacy of their sins.

                Forgive the ways we have sinned against our descendents.

                Our greed has threatened their well-being,

               and our hatred has damaged their peace.

                Free us to be your worthy servants in this hour,

                through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

[silence]

Leader: The saying is true for all generations:

Christ died for us while we were still sinners.

This proves God’s love for us.

In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.

People: Thanks be to God. Amen.
