Call to Worship (Responsive) -Psalm 8 Intern Sean Murphy, Liturgist

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

When I look to your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the

stars that you have established;

What are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower that God, and crowned them with

glory and honor.

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth.

Let us present ourselves before the Lord, to worship, praise, and thank

God.

*Hymn #65 - Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Prayer of Confession (Unison)

God of love, you call us to love one another, just as Jesus loves us. You ordain us

to be one with each other, even as the Father and the Son are one. Yet we disown

our sisters and brothers; our divisions defame your holy name. Forgive us in

your great mercy. Baptize us anew with your Spirit of love, with grace to accept

those whom you accept, to love those whom you love, to forgive one another as

you have forgiven us, and to live and work in united witness; through Jesus

Christ, our risen Lord.

And now, Lord, I confess specifically.....(silent prayers)

Assurance of Pardon (Responsive)

Jesus, Lamb of God.

Have mercy on us.

Jesus, Bearer of our sins,

Have mercy on us.

Jesus, Redeemer of the world,

Grant us peace

I declare to you, in the name of Jesus Christ, God has heard our confession, and

forgiven our sins.

Thanks be to God. AMEN.

The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

And also with you.
