*HYMN NO. 44 “Revive Us Again”

*THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Lord of mercy, there are so many times in our lives when we feel alone. We wonder where you are. We cry out to you in our confusion, pain, and hurt. And when you do not immediately grant the prayers of our cries, we begin to doubt that you even care or exist. Stop us from going down this path of self-destruction. Help us look around and find the many ways inwhich you have blessed our lives. Forgive us when we are so quick to doubt and so arrogant in our demands of yourresponses. Give us a spirit of patience and willingness to be
ready to hear your voice. Strengthen us for the ministries of love and hope that you have placed before us; for we ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN.

*THE WORDS OF ASSURANCE
Leader: Even in the midst of doubt and darkness, the light of God
is shining in you, on you, and through you. Out of God’s great love,
you have been redeemed and made whole. Rejoice, beloved of God!
People: AMEN.
