Prayers of Confession for Labor Day

Lord of the Sabbath

Prince of Peace

Lead us away from our work for rest

Our world is so fast

So noisy

So full

Help us stop and rest with you

Our world is so pressured

Work, work, work

Buy, buy, buy

More, more, more

Reveal the fears that drive us

The pride and shame disguised as sacrifice and hustle

Free us to trust and follow you in the doing and in the ceasing

The congregation is invited to offer their own prayers

We trust your promise to renew a right spirit within

We trust your presence and providing

We trust your blessing of Sabbath rest

Breathe in… Breathe out… in the name of the Father

Breathe in… Breathe out… in the name of the Son

Breathe in… Breathe out… in the name of the Spirit

Amen
