Leader: Praise the Lord!
People: I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Leader: Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them,
People: Full of honor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.

People: the Lord is gracious and merciful.

THE CALL TO CONFESSION

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Eternal God, remind us of our baptism as we prepare to come to your table.
Remind us of the miraculous abundance of your good creation, from which all
we need is taken, and which we share with all of your creatures. We ask these
things because we know that we have sinned and we need forgiveness. We have
sometimes taken more than we need. We have sometimes held what was needed
by others. We need to be reminded that your abundance is meant for all, not just
for some. So as we remember the promise of your grace we enjoy, prepare our
hearts to receive your word and sacrament, through our Lord Jesus. Amen.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE (for examination of conscience and personal prayers of confession)

THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: By grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing: it is the gift of God - not the result of works, so that no one might boast.
People: For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before hand to be our way of life.
Leader: Believe the promise of the Gospel:
People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. - Ephesians 2:8-10

*THE CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE (Hymn 485)
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice! Praise the Lord, praise
the Lord, let the people rejoice! O come to the Father through Jesus the Son, and give
him the glory: great things he hath done!
