Confession inspired by John 11:1-45, Lent 5 Year A — Earl Roberts, USA

A Prayer of Confession

 

We confess that we do not always want our lives restored or renewed.

Speaking truth to the things and the people who bind us is very scary.

Our ‘burial bandages’ not only bind us tightly,

but they also keep us thinking we are secure, hidden away in our tombs.

Call us forth to discover that freedom overcomes slavery and life overcomes death.

Amen.
