This is the prayer of confession shared during this morning’s service. It originates from First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist, where it was written by Rev. Terry Burke. It has been subsequently revised by Rev. Elizabeth Bukey, and revised again by Rev. Sharon Wylie.
Prayer of Confession
Let us confess our brokenness, our lack of wholeness, our sins, the many ways that we are less than we are called to be.
I confess to Spirit of Life and to you, my siblings and kindred, that I have erred in thought, word, and deed, and that I have not honored our interconnectedness nor served the people with all my heart and mind and soul, and that I have not loved my neighbor as myself.
Therefore, I ask your prayers for me. May Love have mercy upon us, forgive us, and bring us to more abundant life. Amen and blessed be.
