Prayer of Approach and Confession

Holy One, God of all Creation, you call us to be your people, to carry your vision today and to go where you send us to share your good news.

            As we gather in the presence of the risen Christ to spread the news that your kingdom is near, fill us with your Holy Spirit. Forgive us, God, when we are closed and locked up with negative acts, thoughts and emotions.

            Help us to not be imprisoned by fear, hatred, prejudice, unforgiveness, pride, greed, anger and selfishness, but open our hearts to the values of Your Kingdom.

            Open our eyes to see Your Kingdom. Open our ears to those who cry for help and justice. Fill us with your glorious Spirit, that we may share your good news with a world in need. Amen.
