Said in unison:

Mystery of mysteries, hide not your face from us.  Hear our confession and forgive us of sin.  We go to the mountains to escape our involvements.  We hear your commandments, then hide from their truth.  We hide our faces to conceal our identities; Christ unmasks our pretense and strips us of pride.  Help us not to be afraid to encounter your presence, and through Christ to stand before you pardoned of our sin.

Great are your works, O Holy One, and greatly to be praised.  Not a day passes without our sensing your presence.  You appeared in Jesus, removing the veil from your countenance.  You spoke through Christ, that we might know your will.  Henceforth we shall behold your glory as we are led by your Spirit.  Blessed Trinity, we praise your name.

Author of a new day, you have written in our hearts the promise of your unending covenant; we bring now our gifts in response to your word.  Translate our faith into acts that please you.  Renew our subscription to our baptismal vows.  May what we confess lead others to worship you, and our responses accomplish your purpose on earth.

Let the trumpet sound, O God, and waken us from slumber.  The day passes quickly and our time is soon spent.  We are caught sleeping when we should be wakeful; there are tasks to be done, fulfilling your will.  Forgive our failure to obey your commandments, and our drowsiness when we hear Christ’s word.

It is good to give you thanks, O God, and to sing praises to you, O Most High.  The dawn is a gift of your abiding mercy; the night passes safely, thanks to your grace.  We arise to grant you all glory and honor; we bow down before you and worship your name.  We can herald the coming of a new day of faithfulness because of Christ Jesus, in whose name we pray.

O God, who in Christ taught us how to be faithful, we respond to his instruction, seeking your favor.  Be pleased with the offerings we give you; may our actions contribute to the well-being of others.  Surprise the offender with our peaceful solutions and startle the beggar by our willing response.  For then we shall love neighbors as Christ bade us to do.

Said in unison:

O God Most High, our bodies are perishable, but you have sent Christ, the promise of our resurrection.  Aging limits us, disease burdens us, disabilities undermine our capacity to function.  We are frail creatures at best.  Yet we glorify these bodies; they are temples we worship.  When some threat afflicts them, we are distraught or destroyed.  We confess our idolatry.  Teach us to number our days to Christ’s glory, and forgive our vain worship of ourselves.

God of Jacob, Leah, and Rachel, you caused a people to journey; they became a great nation.  You named your servant Israel, for you would dwell in their midst.  You are God Almighty and worthy of worship; we follow our ancestors and assemble to praise you.  Be among us to guide us as we honor and adore you, and sanctify our gathering, O God Most High.

God of many deliverances, who in Christ brings soundness of mind, clarity to vision, wholeness of bodies, and wisdom to all we say and do, receive now the fruits of Christ’s work in us.  May what we give be used to make known Christ’s healing presence, so that all may live with assurance of the new life you offer.

O God, you are like an ever-flowing stream, watering the earth and refreshing creation.  We draw from your Holy Spirit life-giving sustenance; we are cleansed of all sin through Christ our Savior.  We receive from your word wisdom to guide us; we sing praises to you for your life-giving care.
