Call to Confession
Woe to the one who builds a house by unrighteousness, and upper rooms by injustice, whose neighbor is forced to serve without wages. (Jer. 22:13-15) But to the one who confesses their sin, God will be merciful. Let us confess our sin before God.
Prayer of Confession OT15B
How quickly we forget
that you are the God who brought us up
out of bondage,
who provided for us in the wilderness,
who led us to the Promised Land.
How arrogant we are,
certain that we are the chosen.
It is all about us.
Forgive us, we pray.
Open our ears to your still, small voice
reminding us that you are God,
that you are sovereign,
that you are
Transform our hearts, we pray,
and instill in us a servant spirit
that everything we do
is born of the quiet humilty
that comes from
to whom we belong.
Assurance of God's Grace
Believe the Good News: We have been delivered from the hand of our enemy that we might serve the Lord without fear, in holiness and righteousness before God all our days. (Luke 1:74-75) Thanks be to God! Amen!
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.
