Call to Worship

From the PC(USA)

We rejoice and give thanks, 
Because we live sustained
by God’s presence and love.
As we mourn the wounds of God’s children,
God weeps with us.
As we give thanks for brothers and sisters
who have lived in faith, God connects us.

As we struggle for justice,
God strengthens us.
As we strive for peace,
God empowers us.
As we work to build the beloved community,
God works with us.

As we offer our gifts to all,
God blesses us.
We rejoice for we are sustained
by God’s presence and love;
We come to worship God.

Prayer of Confession

Most holy and merciful God:
we acknowledge and confess
our slowness to do justice,
our unwillingness to serve You and others,
and our complicity in deferring
the dreams and hopes of the oppressed. 

We have refused to heed Your call
to do justly, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with You, our God.
Far too easily, we cling to inequities
and desires that benefit us
but disadvantage others, both near and far.

Help us to name our sin,
to take responsibility for our actions,
and to be transformed in our hearts
and our actions. 

— Moment of silent prayer & confession —

Through Jesus, shake us from our sleep
with Your call to righteousness.
Move us to live holy lives 
with the compassion of Your grace;
and give us courage to join in Your dreams,
that Your will may be done,
on earth as in heaven.

Assurance of Forgiveness

Prayers of the People

Adapted from Christ Church Cambridge

Oh God, in the fullness of time,
You sent Your Son
to proclaim freedom to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind.
In our own time, open our eyes
to the plight of all those who are poor,
oppressed, and broken-hearted in our midst. 

Thank You for the witness of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who taught us
to build up the beloved community
in our church, in our nation, and in our world.

We commend to You the laws of this nation,
that they may serve liberty, equity, and peace for all.
We pray that You would inscribe
the law of Christ’s love upon our hearts,
to guide us in all righteousness and truth,
gentleness and understanding.

God of love, hear our prayer.
Look with compassion on all who suffer
throughout the world,
especially the vulnerable and defenseless,
the sorrowful, ill, and lonely,
and all who care for them.
May You bring healing, hope,
and restoration for all.

Lord of all nations, hear us.
We pray against the scourge of racism and hatred,
in our nation and across the world.
Grant Your church the strength of character
and depth of conviction to confront injustice
with boldness, determination, and love.  

— Moment of silent prayer & intercession —

Risen Christ, hear our prayer.
May the power of Your resurrection
tear down strongholds of darkness
and fill us with Your hope and joy,
that we would share these gifts freely
with the world around us.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
