Call to Confession
When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. (Psalm 91:15) Let us confess our sin before God and seek God's mercy.
Prayer of Confession, Baptism of the Lord C
We are in over our heads,
Our sin is greater than our capacity
We are navigating rough waters,
seasick from the tossing and turning,
unable to stand on our own two feet.
Finding ourselves between a rock
and a hard place,
we cannot see a way forward.
We have strayed so far from you
and from your truth
that we do not know how to find our way
Forgive us, we pray.
Reassure us of your presence.
Rescue us from peril.
Redeem us from our failures,
and renew us by your grace.
Assurance of God's Grace
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10) 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 day~
