The Tastes of Christmas

Prayer of Confession (In unison, followed by silent prayer) O promised Christ: We are a world at war. Our peace depends on Your coming. We are a sinful people. Our pardon depends on Your coming. We are full of good intentions but weak at keeping promises; our only hope of doing God’s will is that You should come and help us do it. Lord Christ, Word made flesh, our world waits for Your peace, for Your pardon, and for Your grace. Even so: Come, Lord Jesus. (silent prayer) Amen.
