3rd Sunday of Lent, March 7, 2021

Contemporary 9:00am Service

St. Luke’s Lutheran Church  

Welcome!

Prayer of Confession

 Pastor: Let us confess to God and before one another our sins, and especially our failure to acknowledge evil and to oppose it.

People: We confess to You, O God, and before one another that we have sinned. We are complacent about the evil around us. We have become numb to the pain of others as we are inundated by so much information. If it doesn’t hurt us, we are willing to stay on the sidelines. Help us to feel the shame of our impotence in the face of evil. Stir up in us the indignation that we should rightly feel. Steel us with the courage of Your Holy Spirit that we might enter the fray and resist the evil. Help us to stand with all who are harmed by the violence and evil around us. Amen.

Pastor: God is love and so God is justice and mercy. God desires wholeness and healing for all creation. Receive God’s grace and join in God’s work of righteousness in all the world. 

 

Praise Song

Prayer of the Day

We praise You, O God, for You know very well what it is to suffer over the evil that we do. We have broken Your heart time and time again. Help us in this time of worship to open our hearts and minds to the power of Your Holy Spirit so that we may courageously face those evils around us. Help us be willing to be scarred and broken so others may be made whole. Amen.
