PRAYER: A Prayer Of Confession For Lent (1), by James S. Lowry

prayer of confession James A. Lowry

From Prayers for the Lord’s Day: Hope for the Exiles

Lord God,
few of us misunderstand you all of the time,
but all of us misunderstand you some of the time:
Your thoughts on happiness;
Your ideas on giving;
Your way of making whole.
These are not always our ready choices.
Give us faith, we pray,
to risk a dangerous hope,
to be ready to think as you teach, and
to act as you lead.
We pray in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
