Prayers of Adoration & Confession
Through the darkest night, we hear your voice Mighty God.
You speak into the sorrow and grief of the world
In your great love we are held with all creation
Waiting and working for a new way to live in harmony beyond the darkness.
Through the breaking dawn, we hear your voice. Risen Saviour.
You speak our names in the early morning, calling to us.
In your great love you sacrificed everything on the cross
And so, we follow you, your people, the body of Christ at work in the world.
Through the heart of life, we hear your voice, Holy Spirit.
You sing, dance, laugh, groan and pray with us.
In your great love you demand of us that we stand up
To be the voice of the many who have no voice and long to be free. Amen
Mighty God, Risen Saviour, Holy Spirit
We confess our sadness, our despair in the face of so much suffering
Hold us as we grieve and set us free to be a people of hope.
We confess our abundance, our comfortable ordinary lives
Hold us as we reach out and set us free to boldly follow you.
We confess our privilege, our unwitting participation in oppression
Hold us in our struggles and set us free to work for justice. Amen
All creation sings! God is heard!
Listen then. Hear these life giving, heart healing, extraordinary words of grace
In the name of Christ, our Risen Saviour
Your sins are forgiven.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
