UNISON PRAYER We have gathered here, loving God, to repent of our sins publically and privately. We have gathered here to be in the presence of one another, where we can draw strength, knowing that wherever two or three of us are gathered, you are present among us. Guide us and help us put to death those things that separate us from each other and from you. May we know your presence is always with us and the power of your transformative love is within us ...
SILENT / PASTORAL / LORD’S PRAYER Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
