Call to Confession
"Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!" (Matthew 3:2) Let us confess our sin before God and turn from our wicked ways, seeking God's mercy, and giving God praise:
Prayer of Confession
The wilderness is treacherous, God.
It is exhausting and dangerous and
requires too much of us.
The work you are calling us to do
takes too much time.
We struggle to believe
we can make a difference.
Forgive us, we pray.
Cleanse us anew,
hearts and hands alike,
and restore our faith in your promises,
that the work of our hands
may reveal your glory
to a broken
Assurance of God's Grace
God has promised that when God's people confess their sin, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive them their sin, removing as far as the east is from the west, and remember it no more. (Psalm 103:1, Hebrews 8:12) In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God!
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us also forgive one another.
The peace of Christ be with you.
Please extend the peace of Christ to all whom you encounter this week.
