Prayer of Confession

Holy God, remind us that we are loved when we find ourselves unlovable.  Remind us that there is hope when we see all around us makes us despair.  Remind us that you sent the Prince of Peace when war and violence overwhelm.  Remind us that you are the merciful judge when injustice seems to prevail.  Remind us that you give us all we need to do your work in the world.  Remind us that you give us grace so that we can be your people.  We confess our doubt, and trust in your love.  Amen

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

The Memory Verse – 2 Chronicles 7: 14
