Sunday June 18 Confession

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Heavenly father, we are people privileged to have much. Yet, we come to you so often, not with the needs of our broken hearts, but with our petty desires.
Forgive us Lord, we are ungrateful in our selfishness.

We ask for so much, but do we praise you? Do we thank you for all that you have given us?
Forgive us Lord, we forget our many blessings and take for granted our salvation.

We confess that we are takers, selfish in our need to thrive. We do not praise your name as often as we are asking something of it.
Forgive us Lord, we are quick to forget your works.

Yet in this mess, you love us Lord, in spite of ourselves. It is you who has made us, and we are yours.
The steadfast love of the Lord endures forever, his faithfulness to all generations. 

Lord, help us to delight in your creation. Remind us of your greatness, for you are the Creator of all things. You are our Redeemer, our Life, our God.
Praise be the name of the Lord. Amen.
