Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Psalm 127)

God of Sarah, Rebekah and Ruth,
We have worked without letting you work in us;
We have not let you watch over us;
We perversely cherish our busy, busy days.
By your very present Spirit
give us the freedom
to let you work in us,
to let you care for us,
to let you fill our days,
that we may live, not in the strength of our own hands,
but in the strength that comes from life in you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
