Prayer of Adoration – Lacey Bridgebassie

Prayer of Confession (In Unison)
God of our lives and the time in which we live in…
we know you are with us through thick and thin,
in times of great joy and at moments of disappointment.
We confess that sometimes feel let down when
the joy of Christmas Day has passed.
Our hope seems to get folded away with gift wrap,
and our energy for the future feels a bit tattered.
Forgive us when our faithfulness flickers like a Christmas candle burning down.
Renew our hope and energy for the year ahead…
through the steadfast grace of Christ our Lord.
In Christ we pray, Amen.

Prayers of the People – Lacey Bridgebassie

Lord’s Prayer (In Unison)
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory, forever and ever.
Amen.
