Prayers of Adoration & Confession
Wondrous God, bringer of life,
We have been cut off from our usual ways of being in the world.
When we feel disconnected and uncertain of the way ahead,
remind us of the place you have woven for us in the unknowable web of creation.
Let us find new ways to listen to the changing needs of the environment we are part of,
so that we can be ready with thoughtful and imaginative responses.
Jesus, who walks with us,
We have been separated from family, friends and strangers.
When we feel fearful and anxious for ourselves and for others,
show us new ways of coming together in community,
of caring for one another in our vulnerability so that new life might grow among us,
leaving no one to carry their burdens alone.
Holy Spirit, breath of life,
We have been captured by circumstances beyond our control.
When we feel sad or lifeless as we have to let go of our plans and expectations,
reassure us with knowledge of your presence
Restore our sense of peace and help us to seek new life from within,
connecting our lives to your purpose and uplifting us with hope.
Kyrie eleison, Kyrie, eleison, Kyrie eleison, Kyrie eleison
Jesus said to Martha “I am the resurrection and the life.
Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live,
and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”
In Christ, through Christ and because of Christ our sin is forgiven.
Thanks be to God.
