Prayer of Confession

mgypiVuThis prayer is based on Isaiah 55.

God, we are thirsty and you call us to your waters. But sometimes we try to slake our thirst from other sources.

Forgive us when we turn away from the living water that you offer.

God, we are hungry and you offer us bread without cost. But sometimes we pay too much for food that does not nourish.

Forgive us when we do not accept your gracious provision.

Forgive us, God, for the many ways we fail to trust you:

when we spend our money for that which is not bread

and our labor for that which does not satisfy.

God, we seek you; we call upon you.

Have mercy on us, for we know you will abundantly pardon.
