CONFESSION OF SINS 


                              Most merciful God, 
                              we confess that we have sinned against you 
                               in thought, word, and deed, 
                               by what we have done, 
                               and by what we have left undone. 
                               We have not loved you with our whole heart; 
                               we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. 
                               We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. 
                               For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, 
                               have mercy on us and forgive us; 
                               that we may delight in your will, 
                               and walk in your ways, 
                               to the glory of your Name. AMEN

PRAYER LINE PRAYER
Lord God, help us to better communicate with you expressing our feelings and needs without shame because you are our heavenly Father. Loving Father be with us in our prayers, guide us, lead us, provide us with the right words as we come back before you giving thanks daily, asking you for help on behalf of others and ourselves, and as we praise you Lord for all the good things you have done for our community. Help each one of us on this Prayer Line to make you O Lord the center of our lives. Be with us on the days that our flesh is weak and we are about to break our new rule of life. Lord God, we humbly ask you to strengthen us with your love and peace that we never cease to pray. In Jesus’ name.  AMEN
