Holy and Everlasting God, in your infinite wisdom and goodness you call men and women to serve and worship you. We thank you for the gift of music and singing as we lift our hearts and minds before you this morning. Forgive us when we fail to have singing lives and share with others our doubts and fears. Thank you for new life in Christ. By the power of your Holy Spirit, and in the name of Jesus Christ, our risen and living Lord and Savior thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. Amen.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Pardon|
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.
