PRAYER OF CONFESSION

O God, the earth is full of your creatures; in wisdom you have made us all, and you have delivered us into one another’s care, asking that we love one another as you first loved us.  But we have fostered discord rather than unity, contempt rather than respect, ignorance rather than love.  Communities, peoples, creatures, lands, seas—they have been set apart, or torn apart, or driven apart by conflicting claims and thoughtless ambitions.  You know our works and our thoughts, Lord. Have mercy on us, forgive us, and reconcile us in your spirit of peace so that all creation will worship your name. Amen.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

 

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.
