Ahead of Ourselves: A Confession centred on 2 Samuel 7:1-11,16

Settled in our homes, resting in your glory

sometimes Lord we get ahead of ourselves.

What magnificent thing can I do for the Lord? we ask,

as if you are incapable of doing for yourself.

 

Settled in our homes, resting in your glory

sometimes Lord we get ahead of ourselves.

What magnificent thing can I do for the Lord? we ask,

as if your input into our ministry is not required.

 

Settled in our homes, resting in your glory

sometimes Lord we get ahead of ourselves.

What magnificent thing can I do for the Lord? we ask,

as if domesticating the presence of the ineffable One is appropriate.

 

Settled in our homes, resting in your glory

sometimes Lord we get ahead of ourselves.

What magnificent thing can I do for the Lord? we ask,

as if the magnificent thing you did for us can be trumped.

 

Established in your house, rejoicing in your glory

Forgive us Lord when we get ahead of ourselves.

What magnificent things the Lord has done for us! we announce,

and remember that we are forgiven by your grace and favoured by your love.
