Hymn # 350 - Onward Christian Soldiers (red hymnal)
Unison prayer of confession:
God of compassion, look upon us in mercy, for we have not walked in the way of Jesus, your son. We have not laid down our lives for the Gospel, but have sought to advance and defend ourselves. In loving kindness forgive us. Strengthen our faith by your Spirit, that we would be courageous enough to embrace the way of the cross. Enable us to trust that this way of life, proclaimed and lived by Jesus, is the way we want to live and will try to live in during the Lenten Season. This prayer we make in the name of your son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen
