Thanksgiving Prayer of Confession
We thank you, O God
for the manifold gifts you have given to us.
And yet we confess to you
that we have often taken for granted
your grace and your goodness toward us.
We have delighted in the gifts
rather than in the Giver.
We have praised ourselves
for what we have accomplished
rather than acknowledging that all good things
come from you.
Forgive us in your mercy, Lord,
and grant that we might be truly grateful
for all that you have given to us
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
