|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
Each day is a new day, O God; each day is a day of hope. We give thanks and praise for each moment, that fear can turn to joy, and even in darkness light can be found. Our lives are constantly enriched by your love and grace, and we are humbled by your attention to us, all we are, all we do. Yet we are imperfect beings, and we make mistakes. We harm others, we turn from the poor and needy, we experience the emotions of hate and despair. Forgive us we pray! Heal us we pray! Look into our hearts and draw us into the goodness that is life, and your central hope for us that we example Christ in your world. In Jesus’ name we pray, 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.
