Prayer of Confession
God of mercy, in our impatience for answers, we sometimes turn to idols of our own making and forget our covenant with you. Passionate for what is right, we wrong those with whom we differ. Pleased at the invitation to your banquet, we fail to arrive with humility and thanksgiving. Forgive us when our faith is weak and our zeal too strong. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
This is the Word of God for the people of God. Thanks be to God.
Song of Preparation (Video with Lyrics)……………..O Come to the Altar

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
*Following the Light of Christ
You can choose to either keep your candle burning throughout the day, or extinguish it as you sing/listen.
Benediction Go forth clothed in Christ, ready to answer his call and BE the church. Amen.
