Lord God, We come to you to confess our transgressions and to give of ourselves. We have not loved you with our whole heart, we have chosen TV over meditation, road rage and worry over prayer, sleep over worship. God of community, we have failed to love our neighbors. We have isolated ourselves. We have ignored and balked at those who asked for change. We have spoken ill of your children. Lord God, forgive us. God of new life, renew us today. Give us new strength, new energy, new hope. Amen.
