Confession and Forgiveness
Gracious God,
we confess that we too often
forget that we live in your grace,
and that your love surrounds us every day.
In our weakness, we worry about tomorrow
instead of trusting you today.
We accumulate and hold tightly on to all that we have,
instead of remembering that everything belongs to you.

We have acted in ways that are not gracious toward you,
toward our family and friends,
toward our neighbor,
and toward your world.

We have not lived as your graceful presence in the world.
We have sinned by what we have done
and by what we have failed to do.

By your abundant grace, forgive us.
Renew and restore us
that we may walk in your ways
and serve you with our whole heart and mind,
and with our lives and all that you have given us.

With generous grace and abundant mercy, God forgives you all your sins, for the sake of his Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer of the Day
God of grace and glory, by your goodness you have blessed us with all that we have and all that
we need, and have entrusted us with the task of caring for all that you have made. Help us to be
gracious and generous stewards of your gifts, that we may use them to serve all people in the
name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Offertory Prayer
Gracious God, with these gifts we also offer to you our lives and our love, in grateful thanks for
your grace that surrounds us every day. Use these gifts and us for your purpose, that your love
may be known in all the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May God the Father, who by grace created all that is,
and God the Son, who dwelt among us full of grace and truth,
and God the Holy Spirit, who wraps us in grace each day,
bless you and keep you this day and always. Amen.
