Pentecost Prayer of Penitence

With open hearts and minds let us bring to God
those things for which we seek forgiveness.

For failing to love our neighbours as ourselves.
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For failing to see the joy in small things
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For choosing to speak words of anger instead of peace.
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For rushing through life with little patience for those who are left behind.
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For failing to act when kindness would brighten someone’s day
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For only thinking of what we want for ourselves and being less than generous to those in need.
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For riding roughshod over your hurting people when gentleness would be the better and more appropriate way
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For speaking and acting without thinking when mindfulness and
and self-control are called for
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

For failing to live as faithful people of your Way, Truth and Life
Holy God, forgive us and fill us with your Holy Spirit.

Holy God, forgive us our sins and heal us,
through your Son Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
