A Needed Confession

The worship service I attended this morning included the following prayer of confession:

"You call us to worship You in spirit and in truth. But we confess that we often worship not Your true self but who we wish You to be. We too often ask you to bless what we do rather than seeking to do what you bless. Forgive us for seeking concessions when we should be seeking guidance. Forgive us when our worship shapes You into what we want instead of shaping us into what you want...."

I am certain that is a prayer I should ponder regularly. I would suspect that I am not alone.
