Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
God our Creator, your love is abundant and patient, grace-filled and ever-present. When we open ourselves to you, your presence gives comfort, healing and strength. The same beauty that adorns all of nature is manifest in our very selves, waiting to be experienced and shared. We give thanks for such a wondrous gift, and praise the infinite goodness that is the source of all things. We pray, O Lord, that you will give us a clean heart, the sins of our failings swept away by your grace and replaced with the love you have given us. Teach us to forgive and to fully forgive others. Let us hear ourselves when we criticize and judge. Remove our prejudices, and replace them with curiosity and gladness. In you all things are possible. As we struggle against our nature as mortals and our desire for ego and power, let your hand be upon us. Help us surrender to your will, and let the Spirit guide us towards our best selves. Let us be leaders in reconciliation and peace, a safe place in an indifferent world. For we are your people, created anew each day by the love and sacrifice of the One in whose name we pray, in Jesusay after Pente

Assurance of Pardon
