You, who in Christ have assured redemption, hear our confession and forgive our sin.  Christ proclaims your good will toward all people, yet we pursue vengeance.  Those who mourn go uncomforted, as warfare continues in the earth.  Captives without number await deliverance while we take freedom for granted.  The afflicted await some sign of good news.  Amid the ruin of cities and the clamor of protesting voices, we confess our disobedience.  Save your people, O God, and cleanse us of our sin, for the sake of your anointed one, Jesus Christ.
