The Blame Game
Father, forgive me for participating in the blame game, blaming you, my friends, family, co-workers, employers and my circumstances for my mistakes, mishaps and misery. Forgive me for justifying my actions by blaming others. Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.
I acknowledge that you have opened doors for me when access was denied. I confess that you have made a way for me when the way was impossible. I rejoice that you have heard and answered my prayers.
Fill me and move me when frustration threatens to paralyze me. Let my life be as a single string producing clear and characteristic notes of grace that changes the tone of my environment to a joyful noise. In Christ name, Amen.
