Prayer of Confession (Let Us Pray Together)
Merciful God,
in baptism, you promise forgiveness and new life,
but we confess that we prefer our old, familiar ways.
We cling to destructive habits,
we harbour grudges,
and we are reluctant to welcome a stranger or forgive one another.
Nostalgia for the past prevents us from exploring new possibilities.
In your loving kindness, FORGIVE US.
Have mercy upon us and move among us
so that we might pursue new life in Christ together.

Assurance of Forgiveness – Richard Dravid

Song/Hymn: I Am Going To Live So God Can Use Me – Anson Bidaisee

Prayers of the People – Richard Dravid

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.
