Stouffville United Church
1 Timothy 6: 6-19 (NIV)
Prayer of Confession (Together):
Creator God, we want and we need, but we use these words
interchangeably so often that we confuse them. We believe we need our
wants and often live beyond our means. Rather than living in thanksgiving
and gratitude for the abundance you offer to us, we complain about our
wants, proclaiming them to be our needs.
Forgive us, God, for failing to live in gratitude for the already-present
abundance you provide for us.
Words of Assurance (Responsive):
One: We know this about our God:
All: God forgives our shortcomings and opens a new path before us.
One: Let us dare to follow where God leads us.
All: Knowing that as we do, we will become whole and holy.
One: Thanks Be to God.
