PRAYER OF CONFESSION-Unison

Our Father in heaven. If we are to do better today and tomorrow, we need to be forgiven for the blunders of yesterday. Forgive us for greediness and laziness; forgive us for not trying hard enough to find out what is right, and for meek acceptance in that which was wrong. Forgive us for thinking so much about ourselves that we failed to think sufficiently of the rights and needs of others. Forgive the hasty words our tongues have spoken, and forgive the omission of the kindly words we had not sense to say. Cleanse us, O God, of all our faults and errors, and by the perfect sacrifice of Christ Jesus, redeem us into newness of life, we pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER-Unison

God of peace and patience, how it must grieve You when we waste so much of our precious time and energy in worry. We allow ourselves to get so lost in worry over things over which we have no control that we miss the most beautiful moments of life that slip by unnoticed and unheeded. As we give our gifts this morning we acknowledge Your power and our limitations. Help us to trust You, not just this day but all our days, confident in Your abundant blessing as more than adequate to meet every real need we have. We pray this in the name of Christ, our rock and redeemer. Amen.                                                                 (Luke 12:32-40)
