Prayers for Worship March 2014

March 2, 2014

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.

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.

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
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,
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.

The Living Water Jesus offers us is
meant to turn into a spring within us,
welling up to eternal life.

Penitential Prayer
Jesus wants to bring us into harmony with God’s Will, and we resist.
Jesus wants to position us under God’s Rule, and we resist.
Jesus wants us to draw ever closer to the God of Love, and we resist.

For our stubborn resistance, Lord,
we long for Your merciful forgiveness.

Because we are God’s children
we are going someplace with our lives.
Now and forevermore!

Like the Lord Jesus, we have
come to give our all.
We come together as Christ’s
women and men for others.

Penitential Prayer
Lord, although we have listened to Your Word
about following Your example of
caring and compassion for others,
we haven’t really taken the
message to heart.

For our callous indifference to
the hurts and needs of our
brothers and sisters,
have mercy on us, oh Lord.

Go forth from this place of worship
out into the community where people
need the healing touch of compassion
