Prayer of Confession for June 2, 2013

Our Heavenly Father,
In humility, we come,
     confessing who and what we are.
Afraid, we are often unresponsive.
Fearing what You want us to do,
     we turn deaf ears
     when Your Spirit calls.                 
Embarrassed to speak Your Word,
     we close our mouths
     when Your Spirit touches our lips.
Afraid that our ordered lives will be disrupted,
     we close the windows of our hearts
     when the breezes of Your Spirit blow.
Afraid of the new life it might bring,
     we quench the flame,
     when the fire of Your Spirit touches us.
Forgive us, O Lord, we pray.  Amen
