Prayer of Praise
Call to Confession
Nothing can be hidden from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth,
whose wisdom is endless, whose mercy is great.
Prayer of Confession
Trusting in God’s grace, let us confess our sin.
God of abundant mercy, you embodied love for us in the life of Jesus Christ.
You ate with sinners and shared with outcasts.
You loved with boldness and healed with grace.
Forgive us, O God, when we do not trust your love:
when we doubt whether we are worthy of your care.
Forgive us, O God, when we try to cheapen love:
when we limit it to shallow feelings instead of bold actions.
Help us, O God, when we cannot feel your love,
when we are isolated, afraid, and unable to see your presence.
Forgive us, O God, of the ways we fall short.
Free us to try again, and let your love lead the way.
Assurance of Grace
Trust in God and be renewed! So that we may rise up to fly like eagles,
run and not be weary, walk and not grow faint.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God.
