Prayer of Reconciliation

Forgiveness is a way of life for families. Every day family members are called to forgive one another for infractions both great and small. As your child prepares for first reconciliation, here is a prayer you can share with the entire family.

A Litany of Forgiveness

Leader: Blessed are you, Lord our God. We come before you to ask your forgiveness for all of our failings both great and small.

Generous God, you give us so many gifts in life, yet sometimes we forget to share them. And so we say...
All: We are sorry.
Leader: Faithful God, you are with us in one another, yet we sometimes refuse to recognize you. And so we say...
All: We are sorry.
Leader: God of gentleness, you ask us to bring peace to our family and to the world, yet sometimes we spread anger and trouble. And so we say...
All: We are sorry.
Leader: Gracious God, you give us a voice with which to sing, and words to speak, and yet sometimes our words are hurtful or untrue. And so we say...
All: We are sorry.
Leader: Loving God, you sent your only son to show us how to love and serve one another, and yet we sometimes are selfish and unloving. And so we say...
All: We are sorry.
Leader: Merciful God, as we prepare for first reconciliation, help us to ask forgiveness when we need to. Help us to forgive others who have wronged us. And let us be peacemakers in our school and in our family. We thank you for the gift of your forgiveness and love.
All: Amen.
