*UnisonPrayer of Confession:
Eternal God of mercy, hear us as we confess our sin. Daily we awaken to the new life you give us, yet we fail to be thankful for the rest we have received. Moments await our decision to serve you, yet time passes away as we think only of ourselves.

Forgive us for casting aside the precious time you have given.

Jesus Christ and in Him alone we are forgiven.
