Prayer of Dedication

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

For all of our meticulous planning, our forethought, our detailed designs… for all of our efforts to write the script of our lives,
you, O God have this amazing ability to interrupt.
And we’re not so keen to surprises and alterations.
We’re not so quick to recognize from where and who they come. We’re not so willing to get on board and see what you have in store.
Forgive us for our stubbornness and our need to control.
Slow us down enough to sense your leading and give us
the courage to trust you. Awaken us to your imagination
and creativity. Remind us that not only are you the author of our lives, but our lives are written into other lives you’re writing.
Move us, as you would move us, we pray.

For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever.  Amen.
