Call to Worship (Psalm 92:1-2)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
People: To declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
God of mercy, you sent Jesus Christ to seek and save the lost.
We confess that we have strayed from you and turned aside from your way.
We are misled by pride, for we see ourselves pure when we are stained, and great when we are small.
We have failed in love, neglected justice, and ignored your truth.
Have mercy, 0 God, and forgive our sin. Return us to paths of righteousness through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray, Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness (Romans 8:38-39)
Leader: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
People: Shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Psalm 92:1-9, 15
1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,
3 to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
4 For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
5 How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep!
6 The dullard cannot know, the stupid cannot understand this:
7 though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever,
8 but you, O LORD, are on high forever.
9 For your enemies, O LORD, for your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered.
15 Showing that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
