Prayers of Adoration & Confession
Watch or 7:00
God of the prophets you call us home to you
You set signs and wonders before us
to guide us on our way, on the journey of faith.
Your great love enfolds us, flows through us.
Forgive us when we stumble, when we get stuck.
Lift our hearts once more and again
to embrace the hope and joy that shape our living.
Christ child, laid in a manger, God incarnate
You are the embodiment of wonder,
your journey to the cross guides us on our way.
Your great love reveals God to us, opening our eyes.
We are your disciples.
Forgive us when we focus only on the difficulties.
Lift our eyes once more and again
to the everyday wonders that shape our living.
Holy Spirit, dream whisperer, guiding light
You challenge us to embrace the wonder,
the adventure of faith, the delight of the unknown.
Your great love challenges us to open our hearts.
We are children of the light.
Forgive us when darkness consumes us.
Lift our spirts once more and again
to embrace new adventures on the journey of faith. Amen
God comes to us, a child in the manger,
herald of good news, of hope, peace, joy and love.
Know that in the name of this child, Jesus, Son of God
our sin is forgiven.
Thanks be to God
