Prayers of Adoration & Confession
who speaks to us in the every day miracle of creation,
help us to know that you speaking to us.
Help us to have ears to hear your language,
eyes to see the burning,
voices to let others know that they are divine,
and hearts to know that we are too.
When we hear, and see,
and feel the darkness and pain
in the world you have created,
we confess that we are not always
able to be open to your miracles.
At times it is easier and more human
to turn away and dwell on our wounds
that make us tired and untrusting.
Gently hold us as a parent holds their child,
help us to feel light and open to see your spirit,
the energy in the flames Moses witnessed
in the burning bush,
the honesty and loyalty in Paul’s letter to the Romans.
Through your eternal miracle of new life,
we feel our pain, our trauma, our sorrows,
and still we receive your joy and grace. Amen
Hear the word of miracles:
Our sin is forgiven. Thanks be to God.
