Covenant-making God, you call us by name,
transforming our past into your future.
We confess that sometimes we laugh at your call, believing it to be impossible.
We protest, insisting that you should conform to our way.
We ignore your voice, refusing to admit to anyone what we have heard,
instead going about our lives as if we heard nothing.
Forgive us, O God, and speak our names once again.
Change our hearts and our lives, until we are able to trust your promise.
We pray in the name of the One whose name is above all names, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
