Call to Worship and Opening Prayer – August 12th, 2018

Call to Worship (Psalm 130)

Out of the depths I cry to you. Lord, hear my voice.

Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.

If you kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?

But with you there is forgiveness, that we might serve you with reverence.

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in God’s word I put my hope.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord and in God’s unfailing love.

Out of the depths I cry to you.

Lord, hear my voice.

 

Opening Prayer

O God of compassion, if you kept a record of our sins, who could stand?

We come before you with our brokenness and our wounds for all to see.

We bring our anger, our bitterness, our unwholesome talk, and our deceitfulness.

We try to do good, but sometimes fail.

We choose to do evil, and sometimes succeed.

Keep your promise to forgive us when we confess to you completely.

Without you, we have no hope. Amen
