God, You are my Father…

God, You are my Father.

You are big, having more than enough for me.

You are gracious, allowing me to squander your good gifts and still receiving me back.

I confess to you the times I have squandered what You have given me.

I have squandered relationships…opportunities…possessions…and my gifts and abilities…

I have, figuratively speaking, gone to the far country by…

Sometimes my pride keeps me there.  But when I come to my senses, I return home to You.

Forgive me for all the times I have been the older brother…

Thank You for Your incredible mercy and grace.  Amen.
