A Prayer of Confession
O Lord, how we love a good boast!
As Christians, we love how our boasting brings you glory!!
We suffer with patience,
and are patient in our endurance.
Our hope is that our character
will prove this intolerable suffering
We are proud of our scars Lord,
the evidence of trials unseen,
(but oh, let me testify to how brave
I was…umm…of course for Jesus’ sake. Of course.)
Thank you for your endurance, Lord.
For the ways in which you were patient
as we noisily endured,
racking up our Frequent Martyr Points.
Thank you for peace with God,
made obvious to us by the work of Jesus Christ
in revealing God’s truest nature as love beyond dimension.
Thank you that while we were sinners,
that God died for us,
thinking only of us,
and that the words of Christ from the cross
were of pity for us and not for himself.
Thank you for the assurance,
that you’d do it again if it were necessary,
which it isn’t,
but you’d never know from all the
