confession: monotony v. risk

Submitted by Rev. Shannan Vance-Ocampo, Watchung Avenue Presbyterian Church, North Plainfield NJ

Today, O Lord, we confess that too often in life we have failed to remember that you created, called, and sent us into Your world. We have failed to acknowledge and live into this great gift with joy and celebration. We prefer work of monotony to the work of risk-taking. We crave predictable and safe lives to prophetic life-risking action. Remind us again of our callings. Renew in us your Spirit and your urgent thirst for the peace and justice you desire for all of Creation. Disturb our peace and draw us closer to you in Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
