Prayer of Confession: Having Enough

Here’s a prayer of confession  from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

(inspired by Luke 16:19-31, 1 Timothy 6:6-19)

The blessings of each day
food to eat, clothes to wear,
contentment with all we have
whether rich or poor.
This is life in your kingdom.

How difficult, Lord
to walk along this road,
when the world tempts us
with much that which desire,
but do not need.

Forgive our weakness,
and teach us again
to know the contentment
of having enough,
and sharing
not only from our riches
but also from our poverty.
