Prayer of Confession: Abundance for All

Prayer of Confession: Abundance for All

One:                God, we fast in spirit if not in body during this season,

Many:           but we do not know hunger.

One:                We sacrifice,

Many:           but we do not know what it means to go without.

One:                There are those around us who do know,

Many:           but we do not know their names.

One:                The distance between allows us to dismiss their need as if we cannot help, as if we should not help.

Many:           We have blamed the victims.

One:                We have simplified the issue and offered solutions of expedience,

Many:           We have brushed our neighbors aside.

One:                We have placed our belief in fatalism saying it will always be so.

Many:           Forgive us for not placing our faith in abundance for all.

One:                In the name of Christ whose table overflows,

All:                Amen.
