Confession (Daniel 9:4-14)

O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love and obey his commands, we have sinned and done wrong.

We ignore your words
We rebel against your will
We forget you are our sovereign Lord
We forget you created us and are in control of all things.
We do not love the people you have made.

Lord, forgive us as a Christian people
                  And forgive me when I do each of these things.

Lord, you are merciful and forgiving, even though we rebel against you.

We know Lord, that many things happen in this world, due to our sin. 
                  You are righteous in everything you do, yet we disobey you. 
                  You saved your people Israel time and time again, even though they sinned
                  And you continue to show your merciful grace to us, even though we sin time and time again as well.
                 
We know that one day judgement will fall on all those who disobey you.

For now, Lord, hear the petitions and prayers of those who love you.

Delay your wrath, continue to be patient with mankind whom you have made.

We ask in light of your great mercy.
                  O Lord, listen!
                  O Lord, forgive!
                  O Lord, hear and act!


Amen
