For Proper 6C

PRAYER FOR AND ASSURANCE OF GRACE (based on Psalm 32)
Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
God of Grace, we come before you as people who stumble on the path, people who miss the mark from time to time.
Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
God of Grace we rejoice in the promise of forgiveness, of release from the bondage of guilt, of the slate being wiped clean
Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
God of Grace, trusting in your grace we lay our lives – the victories and the defeats – in your lap.
Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.
...time of silent prayer...
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.
We are loved, we are welcomed home, we are forgiven. Thanks be to the God of Grace! Hallelujah!
