*Confession of Sin

 Leader: Before the heavens, let us confess our sin:
Our hearts are far from you, O God.
The glitter of our culture beguiles us,
the things we can buy fascinate us.
People:  Our cisterns are dry and we are thirsty.

We have forgotten your mercies,
and failed to rehearse your mighty deeds.
Our cisterns are dry and we are thirsty.

We have exchanged living in grace for living in our own strength and wisdom.
We have resisted using the means of grace.

We stumble and grope for what does not satisfy.
Our cisterns are dry and we are thirsty.

Forgive us.

Restore to us the living water
flowing over us, and in us, and through us in our baptism.
Restore to us the joy of your salvation.
Our cisterns are dry and we are thirsty.
Have mercy on us and renew us, Fountain of Life.
