Confession at Thanksgiving

Heavenly Father, with grief and hatred of our sin we come before you now. We confess that we have sinned against you. We have broken your law and deserve your full wrath against our sin, except for our Savior, Jesus Christ. Specifically, we confess our forgetfulness of your many blessings. You have made us, sent Christ to die for our sin, covered over our sin, adopted us into your family, given us your Spirit, yet we have been ungrateful for these blessings. Because our sights have been set on earthly blessings, we have taken for granted your abundant provision for us of eternal life and every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Forgive us and turn the eyes of our hearts upon you instead of idols. Recreate us increasingly to be like Jesus, in whose name we pray, amen. (Based on Isaiah 17-18 and Ephesians 1:1-10)
