Prayer of Confession (in unison)
Merciful God, we confess that, like Peter, we too often deny your son by denying our place among his followers. In a world where Christian discipleship is often misunderstood and undervalued, it becomes easy to turn our back on Jesus’ call to live in his name. Forgive us for the times we have failed to claim the name of Christ. Forgive us for the good deeds we have left undone, for the words of witness we have left unspoken. Remind us that even when we desert you, you never abandon us, but in our most desperate, lonely moments your grace comes to us. Give us courage to hold fast to our faith so that when asked, “Are you one of his disciples?,” we may answer with the confidence of your forgiven children, “I am!”
