18th Sunday after Pentecost


September 23, 2018












L:  O Divine Keeper of Promises,

P:  loosen our tongues and let us loudly sing.

L:  Heal our painful past and flood us with peace.

P:  Smooth our worried brows and let smiles gladden our faces,

L:  for you are our God,

P:  and in you is faith for today and confidence for tomorrow.


*Hymn                       ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus                            No. 462


Opening Prayer

Our Creator and Sustainer, we confess that we are not always strong like the trees planted by the water’s edge.  Sometimes we are weak and indecisive.  When the first big wind comes, we lean and break.  We plot revenge instead of letting you fight our battles.  By our silence and busyness, we let wickedness and ugliness fester and flourish.  Today, Lord, forgive us when we covet and lie and when we get caught up in things that displease you.  Heal us, direct our paths and be for us the peace we so desperately crave.  Amen.
