Prayers for Worship February 2023

February 5, 2023

Of all who gather here today,
let none be spectators;
let none be critics;
let none be idle onlookers.

Instead, may all who assemble be humble and sincere, eager to participate in the worship of our God and in the pursuit of truth.

Penitential Prayer
We confess, Lord, that at times we have failed to let our lights shine.

We have neglected to perform our civic duties.
We have remained silent when we should have defended the truth.
We have been too busy for acts of kindness.

Take away our darkness, Lord, and make us reflective of Your Light.

Become the light of the world
and the salt of the earth
dispelling the darkness
and preserving the truth.

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 embrace it,
getting as close to it as possible.

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

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

Happy the person
whose faith is strong,
whose gaze is fixed on the dazzling vision of God in Jesus Christ!

Penitential Prayer
Father, it is not uncommon to hear of people
who claim adherence to Christ
but whose lives are only half-lives,

They speak of brotherhood,
They speak of helping the poor,
They speak of relieving the oppressed,
They speak of many acceptable things,
but they fail in the translation of words to deeds,

Father, forgive us for the half-lives we live.

Reconciliation, peace, fulfillment
for this we pray in Jesus’ Name.

When we pray in the Name of Jesus,
we pray in the Name of the Head
“by whom the whole body is fitted and joined together.”
We pray with all and for all and in all.

In His sacred Presence
the storm of the world is calmed;
In His Presence
even the mountains tremble.
Come, let us worship the Master.
Let us praise the Lord for His sacred Presence,
in all things.

Penitential Prayer
Father, there is not one among us
who will not admit his shame,
For into this house, Your Holy Temple,
we bring our anxious worry,
our greed,
our fears,
our egotistical preoccupations,
our prejudices,
our anger,
and our weakness.

Father, there is not one among us
who will not admit his shame
and pray for Your forgiveness.

Every breath is a miracle,
every heartbeat is a mystery.
Every entity of the universe
is generated and sustained
by the Will of Almighty God.
Worry no more.
Abide in the word of The One True Lord.
