Opening Prayer


Unison Prayer of Confession

Gracious God, hear our confession.
Our faith is uncertain,
      our forgiveness slow,
      our conviction weak,
      our compassion wavering.
We have exalted the proud and powerful,
      put down the weak,
      saturated the rich with good things,
      neglected the poor,
      sent the hungry away empty-handed.
We have helped ourselves.

Show us your mercy,
Help us show mercy,
      through your Son, our Savior. AMEN

Returning our Tithes and Offerings


"¡Canta, Débora, Canta!"

¡Canta, Débora, Canta!                  (translation: "Sing, Deborah, sing!)
¡Canta, Débora, Canta!
Mother of Israel, leader of her armies,
sing a hymn of victory to our God.

                      For our God is good! God is good,
                      and has chosen those who are humble.
                      For our God is good! God is good,
                      and will strengthen the people with might!

¡Canta, Débora, Canta!
¡Canta, Débora, Canta!
We lift up our voices, everyone together,
singing the triumphs of God.   (refrain)
