Prayers For Worship March 2012

March 4, 2012
We come together today,
spirits shrouded in purple,
To continue our pilgrimage,
down unfamiliar ways,
Toward the New Jerusalem.

Let us encourage one another
As we go.

Penitential Prayer
Pardon us Lord our doubtings,
our attachments to material allures,
our impatience with our brothers and sisters,
our laziness, indifference;
forgive our meanness, pride, and selfishness.

Let us go forth together in pilgrimage,
confident that God’s Spirit
will guide us on the way.

We have gathered
not to hear the words of man,
not to sing the songs of man,
not to glorify the deeds of man

Rather, we have gathered to praise the Son of Man.

Penitential Prayer
Lord Jesus, we acknowledge our unworthiness.

Together we turn our voices to heaven,
Together in one spirit we shout:
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often selfish;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often vain;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often weak;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often opinionated;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often haughty;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often insensitive;
Forgive us, Lord, for we are often cowardly;

Forgive us, Lord for we acknowledge our unworthiness.

Having sung praise,
Go in peace.
Having heard truth,
Spread the word.

The Lord is waiting –
Let our spirits rise,
Let our hearts be opened,
Let our turmoil be stilled,
Let our faith be deepened,
And let our love flow freely.

Penitential Prayer
Father, forgive us if, like the scribes of old,
-we pray from memory but not our hearts;
-we take but do not give;
-we judge others but judge not ourselves;
-we listen but hear only what we wish to hear;
-we feign love but harbor hate;
-we preach forgiveness but exercise vengeance;
-we help the needy but only when convenient.

Father, we ask Your forgiveness.

When the Father speaks,
Let us listen.
When the Father signals,
Let us respond.
When the Father commands,
Let us obey.

Listen in the silence of your heart;
Christ’s message is spoken quietly.
Listen in the conscience of your mind;
Christ’s law is spoken justly.

Penitential Prayer
Father, forgive us if we accuse others but overlook our own guilt;
-if we criticize the manners of others,
but are unaware of our own social faults;
-if we are annoyed by the habits of others,
but do not analyze our own bad habits;
-if we blame others for lack of control,
but do not control ourselves enough not to blame others;
-if we make excuses for the failures of others,
but have no excuses for our own failures.
Father, forgive us.

The noise of the world has not subsided,
but the peace of your hearts has been enriched.
Spread your peace throughout the world.
