Prayer of Confession A Litany for Use with the Lenten Triad
Christ, you are the light of the world.
The true light which enlightens everyone.
But we confess that at times we try to hide the light within us. Sometimes we don’t stand up for what is right, and sometimes we knowingly do wrong.
Forgive us for the times we don’t let your light shine through us.
We confess too that sometimes we try to keep others from being witnesses to your light. We make fun of them for being good and encourage them to blend in with the world.
Forgive us for the times we keep others from being witnesses.
Christ, in this dark world help us to shine your light everywhere we go.
Help us to be witnesses for you,
so that through all our actions we proclaim:
Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again.
Sing: “This Little Light of Mine”
