Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)

In the blink of an eye, life exists; in the pull of a breath, life begins; in the opening of a heart, the Spirit enters! You are our life, O God, our breath and our meaning. Your love walks with us through time, and your truth leads us forward towards you. we give thanks for this gift of eternal grace, hope and love. With so much, why do we forget and sin? How can we be idle and let others suffer? Forgive our humanity, we pray. Let our hands do your work and heal the brokeness of this world. Let our hearts be hearts of peace. We pray in Jesus name, Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)
