Prayer of Confession
God of hope, we confess that we, too easily, succumb to the fears of this world. We forget that you are a God of great love and great mercy and that we may rest and work in that love and mercy, entrusting our whole selves to you. Forgive us when our trust falters. Renew us, restore us, reassure us. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven! (R: Thanks be to God.)

The peace of God be with you. (R: And also with you.)
