Prayer of Confession
Lord of life, by submitting to death, you conquered the grave.
Yet we still live as if death has the last word. By being lifted
on a cross, you draw all peoples to you. Yet we turn our back
on our neighbors. By being raised from the dead, you restore to
us all that we had lost through sin. Yet we do not live as
people of the resurrection. Throughout this Easter season help
us to repent of our sin and proclaim the saving love of Christ.
For all praise is yours, now and throughout eternity. Amen.
