Romans [3:28-28-30] 5:1-11
Call to Worship
God welcomes all of us into God’s arms
Come let us rest with God
God comforts us and eases our burdens
God calls us home
Come let us worship our mother God
Come let us worship God
Call to Confession: God calls us all to confess our faith, for faith is enough, come let us confess ourselves to God
Prayer of Confession: God we confess that sometimes we do not feel like we are good enough to be your children. We shy away, not convinced that faith is really enough. We are worried that we have the endurance or the hope that we need. We are convinced that we have not suffered enough. Help us when we are weary or scared, to remember, that you walk with us and are gentle and humble with us to ease our burden, and that you want to ease our burden, like any mother would. Comfort us when we feel anxious or afraid we pray. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon: God says God will give us rest for our souls, know the good news: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Prayer of the Day/Dedication: Let us go into the world remembering that we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have accessed Grace, and that grace is even now spilling out into the world. How can we not share it with everyone we meet? Let us go and do so we pray. Amen.
