God, forgive my barns, a confession — Ana Gobledale, UK & Zambia

A prayer of confession and an entreaty for transformation, inspired by the contrast between the simplicity of life in Zambia and the complexity of life in the United Kingdom.

(To create a group prayer, change ‘my’ to ‘our’ and ‘me’ to ‘us’.)

God, forgive my/our barns
My cupboards
My bureaus
Full to overflowing.
Invade my very being
With a passion for simplicity,
A trust in ‘less’,
A desire to unclutter.
Help me move from the desire for forgiveness
To the commitment to act
From the guilt of having too much
To the joy of letting go.
