Prayers For Worship February 2020

February 2, 2020
Only those who have open hands can receive.
Only those who have open minds can learn.
Only those who have open souls can be filled.

Penitential Prayer
We admit this morning to the sin of pride
We have difficulty in admitting we are wrong.
We find it so hard to say, “I’m sorry.”
We are eager to think of excuses for our mistakes.
We tend to criticize others in order to make ourselves look better.
We often close our minds to the opinions of others.
We pretend to know, when we really don’t.

Forgive us, Lord, and remove our conceit.
Humble us, and give us a healthy sense of awe before You.

Speak the truth,
but do so in love.
Proclaim the faith,
but do so in humility.
Contend for the right,
but do so in gentleness.

The Light of the Lord will brighten the darkest corners.

Open the doors of your hearts
and welcome the Light of Christ.

Penitential Prayer
Let us not dwell on our problems —
Whatever mistakes have been made
will be forgiven.
Whatever transgressions have been perpetrated
will be forgiven.
Whatever sins have been committed
will be forgiven.

Let us ask for the forgiveness of Christ;
Let us pray from the depths of our hearts —
Jesus, we have wronged ourselves as well as others.
Jesus, we are truly sorry for our mistakes, transgressions, and sins.
Christ forgive us.

Work for peace,
pray for peace,
live for peace.
Christ be with you.

PRAYERS FOR WORSHIP February 16, 2020
Even though the evil adversary prowls around looking for someone to devour, we come together under the protection of God who resides at the center of our beings.

Penitential Prayer
We confess Lord that, when temptation comes
our way we nuzzle up to it, we sniff it, we get as close to it as possible.

For these failures to turn away
from the devil we beg forgiveness.

Let us go now, determined to give a deaf ear
to the devil’s whisperings and opened minds
and hearts to the Lord’s Blessings.

Come, let us seek the Lord Jesus.
Let us follow His steps;
Let us receive His Spirit;
Let us hear His Voice
as He reveals the Will of the Father.

Penitential Prayer
Lord, we admit that we sometimes are too willing and ready to listen to the false prophets of our age.
We may have grasped, in desperation, some strange sectarian teaching.
We may have been duped by the hysterical voices of the prophets of doom.
We may have believed those who have said, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace.

For the sin of sometimes being too willing and ready to listen to the false prophets of our age, Father, forgive us.

Go from this place of worship
with joy in your spirit,
with love in your heart,
with a spring in your feet,
with a song on your lips.
