Prayer of Confession

Creator God, You have set before us the path but we have wandered on our own

– to try to find our way.

Sometimes we are like toddlers and we hear Your call and come back.

Other times, we are children testing boundaries,

ignoring Your call until fear finally makes us look back.

And still other times we are full of youthful rebellion,

demanding to be cut loose and set free,

not knowing how much we still need to seek Your wisdom and guidance.

But most of all, too often we think we are adults and have figured it all out on our own

– and know our own way, only to stumble and stray.

Remind us, parental God, that we are always Your children,

that we are never fully grown up in Your sight, that we always have much to learn.

Help us to seek You every day, to acknowledge

that we need Your wisdom and guidance,

and help us to return to the path and walk with You.

In the name of Jesus, who is our companion on this journey of faith, we pray.  AMEN

– written by Rev Mindi
