Affirmation of Grace Response: Amazing Grace! How Sweet the Sound Children come forward
Pastoral Prayer and 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.
Grant us mercy for every time we promised to trust You but turned to our own way when Your response did not come soon enough or in the way we expected.
Forgive us, Loving One, and quench our thirst with Your grace; Remake us into vessels of tenderness and compassion. For Christ’s sake we pray. (silent prayer) Amen.
