OPENING PRAYER

*HYMN  “When Morning Gilds the Skies”                           #322

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION: Righteous God, We have all sinned and fallen short of your glory. You would be justified in any judgment you decreed. But it is your nature always to have mercy. Therefore we are bold enough to come to you, just as we are. We have no excuses and no plea but that Jesus' blood was shed for us and for our children. We confess before you and before these, our brothers and sisters, that we have not loved you with all our heart and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For Jesus' sake, grant us pardon and release, time for amendment of life and the sustaining presence of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
