Many of you have been requesting the Confession that we have been praying through the series, “Take this Job and Love It.”  Because of the large number of requests I thought I would throw it up on the blog.  It comes out of The Worship Source book which is a great worship planning and personal devotion resource.  Click the above link to buy your own copy.

You asked for my hands,

that you might use them for your purpose.

I gave them for a moment, then withdrew them,

for the work was hard.

You asked for my mouth

to speak out against injustice.

I gave you a whisper that I might not be accused.

You asked for my eyes

to see the pain of poverty.

I closed them, for I did not want to see.

You asked for my life,

that you might work through me.

I gave a small part, that I might not get too involved.

Lord, forgive my calculated efforts to serve you—

only when it is convenient for me to do so,

only in those places where it is safe to do so,

and only with those who make it easy to do so.

Father, forgive me,

renew me, send me out

as a usable instrument,

that I might take seriously

the meaning of your cross. Amen.
