Prayer of Confession

Holy God, we open our hearts to you this day, and offer the truth of our lives; the feat that stifles us, the prejudice that blinds us, the ignorance that hobbles us, the doubt that plagues us.  Help us, we pray, that we will find courage in unlikely places, see the world with new and gracious eyes, move to those places where love is needed, have faith that you are with us.  This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

The Memory Verse – Proverbs 3: 5 – 6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.  Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight.
