Prayers of Confession on Life

O gracious and holy God,

give us diligence to seek you,

wisdom to perceive you,

and patience to wait for you.

Grant us, O God,

a mind to meditate on you,

eyes to behold you,

ears to listen for your Word,

a heart to love you,

and a life to proclaim you,

through the power of the Spirit

of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Benedict of Nursia, Attributed.


Ever loving and eternal God, source of the light that never sets and of the love that never fails. Life of our life, Father of our spirits; draw near to us, and by the remembrance of your ancient mercies, and by the ministry of the Church, teach us and lead us nearer to you; by all our fears, by all our joys and sorrows, by life and death itself, teach us, and lead us nearer to you.. Amen.

We praise you today, Lord, for Your incredible power. With mere words You create, transform, and sustain life. As we experience Your presence in this place we ask that You would use Your power to work in our hearts. Help us to become more like Your Son through the power of Your Spirit. Amen.

Austin D. Hill


God, source of all light, by your Word you give light to the soul.  Pour out upon us the spirit of wisdom and understanding that, being taught by you in Holy Scripture, our hearts and minds may be opened to know the things that pertain to life and holiness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
