I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for
salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and
also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is
revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "The
one who is righteous will live by faith."

Take a few moments of silence to "be still and know..."
To you we turn
yet again and discover life, strength, and hope. Trusting in you, we
are made whole, set free to serve, called to continue the work of
Jesus unashamed and without fear. Empower this hour. Our life is in
you, Lord. Amen.
Prayer of Confession
God of love and justice
we long for peace within and peace without.
We long for harmony in our families,
for serenity in the midst of struggle,
and for commitment to each other's growth.
We long for the day when our homes
will be a dwelling place for your love.
Yet we confess that we are often anxious;
we do not trust each other,
and we harbor violence.
We are not willing to take the risks
and make the sacrifices that love requires.
Look upon us with kindness and grace.
Rule in our homes and in all the world;
show us how to walk in your paths,
through the mercy of our Savior. AMEN
