*HYMN OF PRAISE  "O Worship the King" (Hymnal) #73  lyrics

 
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION FOR AWARENESS OF MINISTRY
You call us to many ministries, O God. 
You call us to the ministry of compassion. When we fail to notice need,
or when we turn away from the need, forgive us! 
You call us to many ministries, O God.  You call us to a ministry of teaching.  When we feel our learning days are over, or when we hold back from communicating a new way, forgive us! 
You call us to many ministries, O God.
You call us to a ministry of forgiveness. 
When we will not see another person's point of view,
or when we cannot leave what is past in the past, forgive us! 
You call us to many ministries O God. You call us to the ministry
of proclaiming the Good News. When we lack the courage
to speak Christ's hopeful and loving message to our family
and friends, forgive us!
