Refining God

Refining God, 

it is not easy for us to admit we are not a blameless people.

We trust the promises of politicians, 

but have trouble believing the ones you have made. 

We find ourselves captive to emotions and lusts which stun us, 

but doubt you can save us. 

We prefer the shadowy streets of the world, 

rather than walking in your Light. 

Forgive us, Faithful One. 

May the Light of Christ show us your way; 

may the Love of Christ overflow from our lives to others; 

may the Life of Christ be our model as we seek to be your people.
