L: When we feel separated in the desert of our lives,
P: the Lord offers life-giving water that sustains us in our need.
L: When our future seems lost and others have take our place,
P: you restore our hop and promise us an inheritance.
L: We are here to worship you, O Lord.
P: for you alone can save us!
Hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness
- Welcome & Passing the Peace
O Lord, why do we try to face challenges with our strength alone? Without your provisions, we are lost. Forgive us for not turning to you in our times of need. Be gracious to us and gladden our souls for you are great and do wondrous things. Thank you for reaching out to us even before we remember to turn toward you. Give ear, O Lord to our prayer. Amen.
L: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven.
P: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven.
All: Thanks be to God!
