Holy God: We want to live in right relationship with you, with your creation and with each other. For the ways we need grace, please grant it. For the ways we need your love, please love us. For whatever we need forgiveness for right now, please forgive us.
As a called and ordained minister of the Church of Christ and by Christ’s authority, I grant you forgiveness of all that you need to be forgiven for…in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Prayer of the Day:
Holy One, for water and Word, for bread and wine, we give thanks. For our human kin, for the wonder of your love, for the depth of grace, we are grateful. We come before you today, weary of our world’s brokenness, and hopeful for justice, mercy and peace. Please love us to life and empower us to be your compassion, truth, and hope in the world everyday—starting with this one. Amen.
