Lord Jesus, sometimes I feel so trapped. Hope is trapped by past disappointments.
Confidence is trapped by past criticism or failures. Joy is trapped by past sadnesses.
Faith is trapped by past complacency. Release me from all that traps me.
Free me to sing out the words of my life to the music of your love. Amen. (adapted from roots for churches 2019)
