Wednesday Worship Pieces: Epiphany 6A

This morning I have a call to worship and prayer of confession based primarily on Deuteronomy 30:19-20. For those of you planning for worship, I pray a fruitful, spirit-filled preparation.

Call to Worship

God has set before us life and death.
We long to choose life.

God has set before us blessings and curses.
We long to choose blessings.
So we gather this morning around the table–Christ’s table.
We gather to drink the cup of blessing; to eat the bread of life.
Let us share the meal together. Let us feast on the Word.
Let us worship God with joy!

 

Prayer of Confession

Gracious and Holy God,
For those times we have chosen death over life for ourselves,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have chosen death over life for others,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have chosen not to receive your blessings,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For those times we have prevented others from receiving your blessings,
Forgive us. [Silence]
For each time we have made the easy choice of law over the hard choice of love,
Forgive us. [Silence]
O God of mercy,
Hear our prayers. [Silence]

  1. Thank you for sharing. Beautifully said.

  2. Your call to worship and confession was just what I needed to start my day in a more God-conscious and love-conscious way. I am especially driven to ponder, “For each time we have made the easy choice of law over the hard choice of love,
    Forgive us.” Today I want to make the hard choices of love.

    Welcome to RevGals. I will enjoy exploring your site and no doubt benefit from it.
