Call to Worship, Welcome, Prayer of Confession
& Assurance of Forgiveness
Prayer of Confession
for the things we have done that we regret,
for the things we have failed to do that we regret,
for all the times we have acted without love,
for all the times we have reacted without thought,
for all the times we have withdrawn care,
for all the times we have failed to forgive,
For hurtful words said and helpful words unsaid,
for unfinished tasks
and unfulfilled hopes,
God of all time,
forgive us and help us
to lay down our burden of regret. Amen.

“The God of Abraham Praise ” (Glory to God #49)
1. The God of Abraham praise,
who reigns enthroned above,
the Ancient of Eternal Days,
the God of love!
The Lord, the great I am,
by earth and heaven confessed,
we bow before your holy name,
2. Your spirit still flows free,
high surging where it will.
In prophet’s word you spoke of old
and you speak still.
Established is your law,
and changeless it shall stand,
deep writ upon the human heart
by your strong hand.
3. Your goodly land we seek,
with peace and plenty blest,
a land of sacred liberty
and Sabbath rest.
There milk and honey flow,
and oil and wine abound,
and trees of life forever grow
with mercy crowned.
4. You have eternal life
implanted in the soul;
your love shall be our strength and stay,
while ages roll.
We praise you, living God!
We praise your holy name:
the first, the last, beyond all thought,
and still the same!
