|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
You are the God of power and might, and you are the God of love and grace. Our world is a world of many faces, filled with the music of unexpected and joyful diversity; and it is our blessing to add our voices to your song. We long to serve you, our Creator, with dedicated hearts and willing hands. We want to be our best, with servant hearts, and are disappointed in ourselves when we surrender to our sinful and self serving desires. Forgive us we pray. Rebuild us and employ us dedicated to your Good News for all people. Hear our pleas for healing, fill our hungry hearts as we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Pardon|
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
