Prayer of Confession

Gracious Go, we are a people formed by your Word in Christ; but we have wandered away from your truth, we have broken your commandments, we have distorted your teachings to serve our own ends, we have failed to trust your promises, we have r effused your mercy.  Ground us again, O Holy One, in the written wisdom of Scriture and in the living Word which is Christ Jesus.  Nourish us on the bread of your teachings until we can taste your goodness.  Renew us at the fountain of his wisdom, so we may find joy in obedience and freedom in giving ourselves to you.  Amen

MINISTRY OF THE WORD
