Sharing of the peace
Prayer of the Day: Let us pray. A brief silence is kept before the prayer.
Dear Lord Jesus, help us all to walk in your footsteps as you lead us on our journey through life. Make each of us a champion in following you. Amen
Children’s Moment Songs: Let’s Praise the Lord! & I’m In-Right, Out-Right, Up-Right, Down-Right
Confession and Forgiveness
Dear Lord, I forgot. I forgot that I am free. I keep trying to measure up to earn your love, through all my good deeds, achievements, and successes. I keep trying to make myself “good enough” in your eyes. I forgot that you love me as I am, right here, right now. I keep trying to be number one, successful, a winner, be all that I can be, and I forgot… I forgot that you died for me too. That you did away with the words success and failure on the cross. I keep on trying to be perfect so that you would love me. And I forgot. I forgot that it is by your grace, not my striving, that makes me acceptable and accepted. We learned today that being a champion is being on your team Lord not winning earthly awards. Remind me father, of your love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Amen
