Prayers For Worship September 2017

September 3, 2017
The table of the Lord is set.
The food is prepared and ready.
And we are invited,
but not to a Pollyanish evasion of reality.
We have come
to capture a vision of life as it is,
and what it is to become.

Penitential Prayer
Father we know that Jesus called the Apostle Peter
“Satan” for refusing to face the Master’s imminent death.

Forgive us, Father,
for refusing to face the reality that we all are
moving toward death at every moment.

Forgive us, Father,
for saying, “Let’s change the subject; it’s
too morbid.”

Forgive us, Father,
for our lack of trust in Jesus’ promise
to transform sickness into health,
sorrow into joy,
death into New Life!

Let it be known that God loves each of us.
Let it be known that all, therefore, are worthy of
each other’s love.
Let it be known that though we should die, we will
come to life.
Let this be known in Jesus’ Name.

Come and learn what it is that God is doing in the whole human community.

Come and discover the ways of salvation.

Penitential Prayer
Father, forgive us for drifting from Your way of salvation:
by judging others harshly;
by not trying to understand and self-righteously condemning others;
by refusing to acknowledge that the road to sanctity is open to sinners only.

Christ brings out the very best in us.
Christ sends us out to light up the way of salvation
with the sparkle of our hope and
the light of our love.
