Humility and Repentance

Father, we confess that we are arrogant, proud, self-sufficient, and impatient people. We’ve created a culture that caters to our insatiable appetites. If we are hungry, we eat. If we need something, we buy it. If we are bored, we give ourselves to mind numbing entertainment.

Lord, as we fast, tune us into the selfish side of our cravings. Remind us how quickly we can be disrupted. One day without coffee and our heads hurt. One day without meat and our stomachs grumble. Humble us, and remind us that it is in you that we live and move and have our being.  

In Jesus' Name, Amen.
