Just a few Sundays after Easter, Psalm 30 leads us into worship.
I wrote this for the United Church of Christ’s Worship Ways for another season on another day. Nevertheless, it would still fit well on Easter 3C. I’ve adapted it only slightly — and by adapting it, I mean that I threw in an “alleluia” because I can never say it enough. Especially during Easter.
Prayer of Confession
O Healing One, we cry to you for help.
We choose to listen for your voice above all others.
Be gracious to us for we have made mistakes.
We have made choices that have harmed our relationships
with your children and your created world.
Hear us, Healing God, as we move next to you in silent prayer.
Extended prayerful silence
Words of Assurance
When we are silent, God moves!
Praise our Healing God with all your soul!
Give thanks forever for God loves and forgives you!
