Unison Prayer of Confession                       

Lord, Your selfless generosity provides all that the world needs, yet we often keep Your gifts for ourselves. Forgive us when we are thankless and indifferent to the needs of others. Rather than open our mouths in praise or song, we keep silent.  We forget how deeply You care for us, and we're blind to the abundance that surrounds us. Restores us, renew us and fill our hearts again with Your love. Show us what it means to be truly grateful, and return us to Your presence.  Amen
