at blessings without number and mercies without end:
We lift our hearts before you and wait upon your Word,
we honor and adore you, our great and mighty Lord.

One: Gather us in, O God,

All: Your people are here to worship!

One: Hold us in faith, O God,

All: We are here to serve.

One: Send us in hope, O God,

All: We are here to follow.

One: Make us your people, O God,as we worship, serve, and follow.

Prayer of Adoration

*+Processional Hymn #551 Come, Ye Thankful People, Come  ST. GEORGE’S WINDSOR

Call to Confession

Silent Confession

Prayer of Confession

God, forgive us. Our communion is not always visible to the world.
Sometimes we allow threats to unity to enter the church,
making it hard to see that we are your community.
We act as though we do not need each other.
We do not always love one another.
We do not know and bear one
another’s burdens.
We do not always give ourselves willingly and joyfully to one another.
We fail to build each other up
.
Forgive us, and strengthen us so that we may live in the unity that you grant us.
Amen.

Come, passion’s power holy, your insight here impart,
And give your servants lowly an understanding heart

To seek you more sincerely when false ideals have died:
For vision we implore you, for wisdom’s pure delight;
In prayer we come before you to wait upon your light.
