confession: unfair

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

One: God, why isn’t life fair?
All: We confess that we follow rules expecting a reward,
hoping that if we just say, believe, or do the right thing,
you’ll love us, help us, save us.
One: But fairness does not seem to be your goal.
All: Help us to see beyond fairness to justice,
beyond rule-following to relationship with you,
beyond envy and resentment to love and wholeness.
