Prayer of Confession
God of mercy and grace, your table is spread before us and we remember. We remember the love of your Son who washed the feet of the one who would betray him. We remember the love of your Son who broke bread and whose body was broken. We remember the love of your Son and cannot bear the reality of our sin. We are not worthy to be at table or to be served, yet your Son welcomes us and serves us. Forgive us and help us remember our Savior who was broken that we might be made whole.

The minister continues: You are holy, O God of majesty, and blessed is Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,....(minister continues) ....Accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving as a living and holy offering of ourselves, that our lives may proclaim the One crucified and risen.
