|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
Who are we, Lord, that you are always there? Wherever we go, you are near, and whenever we speak, you hear us. Because of your love we are never, ever, alone. With you we are always beloved children, flowers in a holy garden tended with care. Your desire for us is joy. You have given everything, that we might have life and forgiveness, and we are thankful beyond words. Loving God, there are times that we are afraid and don't feel your presence, or are lonely and can’t hear your voice. When we suffer loss, we may feel you’ve forgotten us, and our prayers fall silent. Forgive us! Hear our prayer for forgiveness! Who are we to doubt you, to cast aside our trust? Give us the strength to persevere, to seek, and to ask. Give us the power to heal our frightened souls, for we are yours always. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Pardon|
Hear the Good News! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun. Know you are forgiven and be at peace. Amen.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
