Prayers of Confession on Time

Adapted from Psalm 90:12-14

Teach us to number our days 

That we may gain a heart of wisdom. 

Relent, Lord! How long will it be? 

Have compassion on your servants. 

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love 

That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Adapted from Ecclesiastes 3

There is a time for everything,

And a season for every activity under the heavens.

A time to be born and a time to die,

A time to plant and a time to uproot,

A time to tear down and a time to build,

A time to mourn and a time to dance,

A time to keep and a time to through away,

A time to be silent and a time to speak.

Spirit of wisdom, please help us to know when.

God of all times and places, we confess that we try to limit our exposure to you. We try to limit your presence to a tidy little box, safely tucked away where we can pull you out as needed. We try to limit your influence to our spare time, anything that is left over after we do the truly important things. Remind us, O God, that you are bigger than any box and more important than anything else we place before you. Amen.
