Revelation: God Making Himself Known to Us

Silent Prayer and Meditation

Prelude: “My Inmost Heart Now Raises”

Christian Greeting

Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.

Responsive Scripture Reading: Psalm 145:8–9, 14–21

Leader: The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

All: The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.

You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works.

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

Corporate Prayer of Confession

Almighty and merciful God,
we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.
We have followed too much
the devices and desires of our own hearts.
We have offended against your holy laws.
We have left undone those things which we ought to have done;
and we have done those things which we ought not to have done,
and there is no good in us.
O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Spare those who confess their faults.
Restore those who are penitent,
according to your promise declared to the world
in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,
that we may live a holy, just, and humble life
to the glory of your holy name.
—from The Book of Common Prayer
