Worship Prayers for February 24
CENTERING PRAYER *Feasting on the Word
“God of abundant mercy, you alone can turn evil into good, sorrow into rejoicing, and death into everlasting life. Teach me your way of grace – to meet hatred with kindness, to answer curses with blessings, to love without holding back, to give without thought of return; all in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
CALL TO WORSHIP
Take delight in the Lord, who satisfies the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord and trust in God’s actions.
Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for God.
The Lord is our salvation and our refuge in times of trouble.
Come! Let us worship the God of Resurrection.
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Merciful God, we confess we have not followed your ways or trusted your promises. We love only those who love us; we show kindness only to those who are kind to us; we give only when we expect to receive. Forgive us, Lord. Fill our hearts with your selfless love. Change our lives by your matchless grace. These things we pray through Christ our Savior. (Silent Confession) For the sermon "Same but Different", click here.
