Prayers For Worship March 2018

March 4, 2018
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

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.

by forgetting our anxieties and remembering
Your Love;
by forgetting our prejudices and remembering Your Grace;

Your Power;
by forgetting our woes and remembering
Your Peace;
by forgetting our opinions and remembering
Your Truth;
by forgetting our violations and remembering
Your Forgiveness.

Though Christ died at the hands of men,
He died for the love of men.
Let us celebrate the perfect love of Christ.

Penitential Prayer
We fall so short of Christ’s perfection,
but this is the way of the universe.

We are mere humans,
prone to falsity,
prone to conceit,
prone to power,
prone to vanity.

We are far from the perfection of Christ,
and we ask for His forgiveness.

Our Father in Heaven,
we pray that You will not find our hearts offensive;
we pray that You will hold us near to Your plan.
we pray that our lives will be lived in harmony with Your plan for our fulfillment.
