One : Bless the Lord, O people, sing!
Many: Let the sound of praise ring out.
One: Come and hear what the Lord has done,
All: The Lord who has made everything!

|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
God of power and God of light, we depend on you for strength in times of need, assurance in times of doubt, love in times of loneliness. Always, you are there, waiting for our call, our prayer. We are blessed beyond measure and thankful with every breath. You ask for nothing but our faith and a desire to live our best lives, remembering how Jesus told us to love one another. It should be so easy, Lord, but it is hard and too often we don't love. We are angry, we judge, we even hate. Forgive us! Heal Us! Make us new! Let our prayer be heard and our hearts filled with the love of Christ and fed by your Spirit. We ask in Jesus
|(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.
