Prayers of Confession on the Beatitudes
Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us that those who mourn will be comforted. Too often we fail to offer that comfort. You taught that the meek will inherit the earth, yet we often take advantage of those who do not stand up for themselves. You bless those who hunger for righteousness, yet righteousness slips our minds more often than not. We struggle to be merciful, or pure in heart, or peacemakers. Forgive us these and all our sins, as we continue to confess in silence…
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Eternal God, in whom we live and move and have our being, your face is hidden from us by our sins, and we forget your mercy in the blindness of our hearts.
Cleanse us from all our offenses, and deliver us from proud thoughts and vain desires. With lowliness and meekness may we draw near to you, confessing our faults, confiding in your grace, and finding in you our refuge and strength; through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.
