You are the giver of life. You have created us with a deep longing which can only be satisfied by You. You are ever so willing to bless us with the ultimate good life now and through eternity.
We confess we often care more about the here and now than our eternal lives. We live as if there is nothing beyond this broken and temporal world. We even pursue sinful acts for fear of missing out.
Forgive us for putting ourselves in charge and expecting You to serve us. Forgive us for not trusting You enough to submit to Your perfect plan. Forgive us for turning good gifts from You into objects of worship.
Lord, help us to fix our eyes on You. Let us not be like the foolish rich young man who chose to hang onto his great possessions and forfeited the gift of eternal life and treasure in heaven. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
