LECTIONARY, YEAR B
January 21, 2018

If you’re stuck in your worship planning process, here are some prayers for your use.


UPDATE

I’m back! Obviously, I have not been keeping up. Sorry about that. I have not given up!  A little tweak will be to offer a prayer or two each week that may be of help if you are in a bind. I am hoping that this will be more doable. We shall see and thanks for hangout out a bit.

Confession: Jonah

Too often, God, we become distracted from your intentions for our lives. We become unable to draw ourselves away from our pursuit of wealth, comfort, and security and we only create more scarcity, anxiety, and vulnerability. When we hear voices that try to remind us of your hopes for us and for the world, forgive us when we turn away and ignore them. Forgive us when we ignore the warnings, and give us the courage and will to change our ways. AMEN.

Assurance of Pardon: Jonah

As individuals and communities, not only do we have the ability to hear God’s calling upon our lives, but in repentance, we also have the capacity to act and change our ways.

People of God, hear the good news that in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ you are forgiven and made new. AMEN.

Dedication of Offering: Jonah

God, let these offerings meet the needs of today as well as the needs of tomorrow. Our journey with you is both immediate and eternal and for the privilege that it is to serve you, we give you thanks. AMEN.
