PRAYER OF CONFESSION

God, forgive us for forgetting that your love is higher and deeper and wider than we could possibly imagine.  Forgive us for thinking that we could be separated from that love, denied your peace, or condemned to the shadows. God, reassure us again that through the Spirit you have claimed us as your children.  We pray with each breath, each day, to follow in the way of Jesus.  Amen.
