Confession of Falling

Leader: We come before you God as a prideful broken people. A people who are so often propped up by the things of this world instead of you and you alone.
All: Lord, we are ready to fall.

Leader: We confess that we prop ourselves up with our money, our own efforts to succeed, and our attempts to keep our brokenness hidden.
All: And we are ready to fall.

L: We confess that we are weak in body, mind, and spirit and we do not turn to you.
All: Lord, we are ready to fall.

L: We confess that we choose not to hear and see you. We choose to let our brokenness direct our lives.
All: Lord, we are ready to fall.

L: We confess that we also choose to keep ourselves closed up to you and to those around us.
All: Lord, we are ready to fall.

L: We confess that we allow anger and guilt to bind us up instead of being bound together in you.
All: Lord, we are ready to fall.

L: Lord we want our longings to lay open to you, we do not want to hide our sighing any longer.
All: O Lord, our Saviour, we are ready to fall.  Catch us.
