"Our sins are piled up before God and testify against us...The Redeemer will come..."
Isaiah 59: 12-13, 20
Almighty and Everlasting God, we come confessing we have allowed too many things to pile up before you, even are sins. The work, the emails, the project completing, the thinking, the dishes, the laundry, the assignments, the trash, the mess, the shopping, the cooking, the wrapping, the giving, the tweeting and text responses are piled high even the sins that so easily beset us. O Lord, what can we do?
Isaiah prayed for Israel knowing that they couldn't handle their pile of sins by themselves. Neither can we. As we celebrate the coming of the promised redeemer who can buy us from slavery to sin again in this Advent season forgive us Lord. Then, show us how we can bring down to size the earthly piles of oughts and should. Amen.
