Call to Worship

(based on Psalm 130)

Wait for the Lord, like those who hope in God’s mercy.

God’s steadfast love endures forever.

Watch for God, like those who eagerly await the morning.

We watch for God, whose power redeems us.

Hear God’s hopeful word, like those who long for pardon.

Sing praise to God and rejoice in God’s love.

Opening Pray

Loving God,

we are yours.

We come as we are,

with our cares and concerns.

We long to touch you

and find healing in your embrace.

Strengthen our faith

and heal our brokenness,

that we may worship you with joy. Amen.

Confession and Forgiveness

Merciful Lord, we confess that with us there is an abundance of sin, but in you there is the fullness of righteousness and abundance of mercy.

We are spiritually poor, but you are rich and in Jesus Christ came to be merciful to the poor. Strengthen our faith and trust in you. We are empty vessels that need to be filled; fill us.

We are weak in faith; strengthen us. We are cold in love; warm us, and make our hearts fervent for you that our love may go out to one another and to our neighbors. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Benediction

May Christ, the wisdom and power of God, and the source of our life together,

keep you united in mind and purpose. And the blessing of almighty God, the Father,

the Son and the Holy Spirit, be with you always. Amen.

Sending

Stay home in peace and serve the Lord.

Amen.
