Prayer of Confession:  Lord you are good and generous to us. You meet our every need and you shower us with blessings. Yet, in spite of your goodness to us we still battle worry and stress. We let our minds get consumed with countless thoughts. We let our hearts worry about things that are beyond our control. We let our work, our school and even situations in our homes steal our peace. Forgive us Lord. By your Holy Spirit help us to cast our burdens on you so that we can live peaceful, faith filled lives. For the glory of your matchless name we pray. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon: God is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He removes our sins a far as the east is from the west. In Him we are forgiven!
