Opening prayer of confession
Merciful God, who raised Christ from the dead so that we might live, be with us this day. Open our hearts to your presence. Oh God, forgive us when we close ourselves off to you. Forgive us when we close ourselves off from our community. Forgives us and open us up to new ways to be one in Christ Jesus. (Silent prayer) Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
We are one in Christ Jesus. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace!
Thanks be to God.
