Hymn – #414 God Reveal Your Presence

Opening Prayer & Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive – bolded)

Loving God, we come to you in worship and thanksgiving.
You are greater than we can understand;

open our eyes that we may see the wonderful truths
you have shown to us in Jesus and through the Spirit.

You are more loving than our hearts can respond to;

help us to give ourselves to you in worship
so that we learn what you want us to be.

You are wiser than we can know;

still, our minds as we worship you
so that we can understand the things you are saying to us.

Loving God, in Jesus
you look upon our sinfulness with compassion.

For that reason we come clean before you
Admitting our weakness and our need.

Teach us your way, that we may walk in your truth.
Give us undivided hearts to revere your name.

Set us free to walk in this world in humility
empowered by your suffering love 
for the reconciliation of all things. 
In Jesus name, Amen.
