Good Friday – A Prayer of Confession of Sin

Merciful Father,

we meet each other today at the foot of the cross.

We wait with each other as those who inflict wounds on one another:         

         Have mercy on us.

As those who spurn Your love for other loves: 

         Be merciful to us.

As those who put our trust in power and prestige:

         Be merciful to us.

As those who pursue only our own personal interests:

         Be merciful to us.

As those who put others on trial:

         Be merciful to us.

As those who refuse to forgive:

         Be merciful to us. 

As those who are afraid of the world’s frown and displeasure:

         Be merciful to us.

We pray for the sake of your dear Son who died to grant us mercy, Amen.
