Prelude/ Lighting of the Candles
Opening Prayer: Holy God of mystery and miracles, reveal you presence to us, as we gather is worship. Send your Holy Spirit to descend upon us, as angels once descended to Jacob. Raise our thoughts, that we may reflect on your promises and trust with hope in promises yet to come. In your holy name, we pray. Amen.

CALL TO CONFESSION
Matthew 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. Come now to confess all that separates you from others and from God.
Prayer of Confession: Patient, loving God, when we are groaning and griping, comfort us and forgive our shortcomings. When we are doubting and afraid, comfort us and reveal your promises to us. Help us trust with hope, and wait with patience, even as you patiently love us with your mercy and your grace. In your loving name, we pray. Amen.
Words of Assurance: We have this hope: God’s promises are sure, and Christ’s mercy is ours. All is well. All will be well.
