confession: lost and turn

A prayer of confession written while reflecting on the Prodigal story, from the younger son’s perspective.
Submitted by Rev. Teri Peterson, Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church

One: God, it’s so easy…
All: so easy to hear the many voices
that are louder than yours.
One: God, it’s so easy…
All: so easy to forget who you created and called us to be,
to lose ourselves in the piles
of wants and worries, checklists and crises.
One: God, it’s so easy…
All: and yet so hard—to slow down, to listen,
to turn and repent and come to you.
Help us to take that risk, that leap of faith,
to turn and be healed.
