Prayer of Confession
3rd Sunday in Advent - Year C
December 13th, 2015
Here's a Prayer of Confession for the 3rd Sunday in Advent (Year C), December 13th, 2015 inspired by John 3:7-18.
John the Baptist gave us wise advise,
he said "whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none;
and whoever has food must do likewise."
We confess that we do not always do this.
Our closets are overstuffed and our cabinets overflow
while people around the world freeze and starve.
Help us, gracious God, to share the joy of blessing with others around us.
May we remember that as long as there is one cold person left in the world,
s long as there is one hungry person left in the world,
we still have work to do. Amen.
