Pastor Karla No. 566
Pastoral Prayer and 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. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
Elder Douglas Buser
Prayer of Confession (in unison, followed by silent prayer) Giver of life and love, You call us to be Your light in the darkness, Your voice in the wilderness, Your hope for the hopeless, and yet we refuse to reflect, refuse to listen, and refuse to go. Forgive us for choosing complacency over Your abundant life. Replace our stubbornness with Your strength. In our weakness, give us peace and gentleness, words and boldness, to proclaim more of You and less of us. (silent prayer) Amen.
