Living in This God Given World: Food!
Call to Worship
Providing God, You give us enough
We thank you for all you have given us
When we are hungry, you feed us
Come let us praise God who provides for us
Prayer of Confession: God, we confess that sometimes we grumble, sometimes we worry that we do not have enough. We confess that sometimes we hoard our resources. It is hard to trust that you are an abundant God. Forgive us, teach us to appreciate your abundance, and to share what we have, we pray. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon: God’s grace is from everlasting to everlasting. It has no limits, so hear the good news; In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Amen.
Prayer of the Day/Dedication: God all that we have comes from you. Let us rededicate ourselves to you, and remember your abundance, trusting that you will give us what we need. Let us give you our thanks and praise. Amen.
