Prayer of Confession: Where can I go?

(based on Psalm 139:7-12)

Where can I go from your spirit? 
Or where could I get away from your presence? 
If I climbed the heavens, you would be there; 
if I made my bed in Sheol, you would be there. 
If I were to fly with the morning light 
and settle at the farthest limits of the sunset, 
even there your hand would lead me, 
and your right hand would take hold of me.
If I asked the darkness to cover me, 
and the light around me to become night, 
even the darkness is not dark to you; 
the night is as bright as the day, for light and dark are just the same.

Forgive what we have been,
help us amend what we are,
and shape what we shall be;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
