Gracious and Merciful Father,                                                          

We come before you to confess our sin as Your redeemed and beloved children. May Your Spirit alone convict us of our sin and remind us of our pardon in Christ through repentance.

We pause now to silently confess our individual sins before confessing together as a congregation from the text in Joel.

We confess that we don’t often display our repentance outwardly by involving our bodies (Joel 1:13-14).

We confess that we frequently fail to call out to you in repentance choosing instead to be angry with you over our material losses (Joel 1:15-20).

We confess these things before You because You are faithful to forgive us in Christ. Bless us with the assurance of our pardon by Your Holy Spirit in Christ alone by faith alone through Your grace alone from Your Word.

Amen
