Prayers of Confession on Judgment

Heavenly Father, Our sin deserves Your judgement. Our trespasses are worthy of Your wrath, yet we seek Your forgiveness. We are sorry for our tendencies toward selfishness. It is clear that with You we bring nothing to the table, yet You give freely to us. Without You, there is nothing, but with You, there is everything. Fix our eyes on Your perfection and goodness so that we may experience Your love and power. In Jesus’ Holy Name we pray.  Amen.

Gracious God, our sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo. Forgive what our lips tremble to name, what our hearts can no longer bear, and what has become for us
 a consuming fire of judgment. Set us free from a past that we cannot change; open to us a future in which we can be changed; and grant us grace to grow more and more in your likeness and image; Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Book of Common Worship


Holy God, You are the anchor amidst our fears. You know the sins we can’t even admit to ourselves. You show your faithfulness even when we reject You. You offer grace even when we offer judgment.   Forgive us, God. Help us overcome our fears. Help us face all of our sins. Help us to be faithful. Help us to be full of grace. Remind us that we are a people of redemption, not a people imprisoned by our sins. And help us to live as people of hope, shaped by Your forgiving love. Amen.

I confess to God almighty, before the whole company of heaven, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned in thought, word, and deed, and pray God almighty to have mercy on me. 

May almighty God have mercy on your, pardon and deliver you from all your sins and give you time to amend your life. Amen.
