Our Father, we confess that our longing for the comforts of this world has been extreme and sinful. We have loved the gifts more than we have loved the Giver. We have labored for bread that does not satisfy. We have fallen short. Help us to see that the things we pine for in this life are mere shadows while you are the substance. Enable us to discern that they are quicksand while you are the rock. Assist us to believe that they are just ripples while Jesus is the anchor. Accept His worthiness for our unworthiness, his sinlessness for our transgressions, his fullness for our emptiness, his righteousness for our dead works, and his glory for our shame. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
