Leader: LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
All: You have set your glory in the heavens.
Leader: When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
All: what grace is that you are mindful of us?
Leader: You have made us a little lower than the angels
All: and crowned us with glory and honor.
Leader: You have given us dominion over the works of your hands;
All: You put everything under our feet. LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Dear Father, the creator of the universe, we come before you as broken people in need of your grace. We need revival of your spirit within and without. Help us to reach out to you, understand you and love you the way you love us. Sometimes we stray far from your Word and your Spirit. Gather us back into your fold, into your arms as your loving children, forgiving our iniquities and disobedience. Show us the way through your Holy Spirit, guiding us and leading us always. In Christ’s name, Amen.

Lord, for this joy, we give you thanks.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on 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, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen
