Last Supper: Abundance of Presence
Matthew 26: 17-30 and Psalm 116: 12-15
Call to Worship
I love the Lord my God, who has heard my voice and supplications
Because God has inclined an ear to me, I will call out for God as long as I live.
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous, our God is merciful
Come, let us walk before the Lord.
Call to Worship
Come let us break bread together today
Come Let us drink the fruit of the vine together, on our knees.
Let us do this remembrance of Christ
Come, let us proclaim his death until he comes again.
Confession: Lord I confess sometimes I am Judas ready to betray, sometimes I’m Peter quick to deny what I’m going to do, sometimes I’m the disciples oblivious to the truth though I’ve been told over and over again. Forgive me, help my faith, save me Jesus I pray.
Confession: Lord I confess I feel the snares of death, O Lord, I pray, save my life. Help me, your servant, loose my bounds to sin I pray. Free me to love you.
Confession: Lord I confess that I have forgotten that you are present. I have forgotten the miracle of your bread and your cup. Forgive me and breathe life back into me I pray.
Assurance of Pardon: (Psalm 116: 8-9) Know this: Your soul has been delivered from death, and now you walk in the land of the living, In Jesus Christ you are forgiven.
Assurance of Pardon: The Lord has dealt bountifully with you, returning your soul to your rest, so know that you are deeply and fully forgiven in Christ.
Prayer of Dedication/Prayer of the Day: Lord, you poured out your blood for the forgiveness of sins, you have already sealed the new covenant with us. Hold that in our hearts so that we can dedicate all that we do to you.
