O LORD our God,
who ransomed a people for Yourself
from every tribe and tongue,
You alone are God.
Yet, with the grumbling of our mouths,
the complaints we entertain in our minds,
and the discontent we harbor in our hearts,
We have not worshipped you alone;
instead, we have sinned against you
by elevating our own wisdom beside yours.
Too often times we’ve thought
situations should have been different,
places should have been switched,
roles should have been reversed.
We have presumed that we, not you, know what is best.
We have sinned against you
by complaining about and questioning
your wise and perfect ordering of all things.
Forgive us, Father,
through Jesus Christ,
whose blood cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
We ask that You would give us grace and faith to see,
whatever our circumstances,
that You alone are God and You order all things well.
