Prayer of Confession on Pentecost Sunday
who sent the promised Holy Spirit
to fill disciples with willing faith:
We confess that we resist the work of your Spirit among us,
that we are slow to serve you
and reluctant to spread the good news of your love.
God, have mercy on us.
Forgive our divisions
and by your Spirit draw us together.
Create in us a desire to do your will
and be your faithful people
for the sake of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
