CONFESSION (from Every Season Prayers, Scotty Smith)

Almighty and most merciful Father, we begin the season of Advent with the brokenness of the world in our eyes, the cries of our neighbors in our ears, and the reality of our sin in our hearts. Thus, we look to Jesus — the Author and Perfecter of our faith, sacrifice and priest of our salvation, Lord and restorer of all things. By your grace and for your glory, forgive our sins and renew our hearts. Help us to move through a worldly holiday of excess into a worshipful Advent and Christmas. Help us to love as you love us, forgive as we’ve been forgiven, and freely give as we have freely received. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
