Concerns of the Church

Call to Worship (John 8:12)

Leader: The Lord be with you.

People: And also with you.

Leader: Jesus said, I am the light of the world.

People: Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Remind us, most patient Father, that there is no real relationship without trust and honesty, no healing forgiveness without confession. Save us from the Pharisee's self-righteous pride, from his fear of losing face. Give us, rather, the courage of the publican, who knew he needed forgiveness and a fresh start and did not care who might be watching him pour out his heart to you.

Help us to make proper use of our Lenten opportunities for worship and self-searching. Assist us in our ongoing struggle for integrity. And grant us courage to right the wrongs we have done and to make up for the good we have left undone.

We implore you to hear us, for Jesus' sake. Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader: Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)

People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)
