One: God, you provide beyond our imagination
All: and yet somehow, not quite up to our expectation.
One: We desire so many things, forgetting your desires.
All: We long to control what you do, how you act, who you favor.
One: But you call us to a feast full of guests we would never choose.
All: Forgive us when we act as if your giving is restricted to our pleasure.
Forgive us when we try to ration your abundance.
Forgive us when we fail to share your generosity.
One: Fill us again, O God, with your goodness, and nurture our faith,
All: that we may grow in your love.
sung: Kyrie Eleison
