Moses - Late Summer Year A

Prayer of Confession

The Pharaoh decrees death to the foreigner.
The power of fear and hate rage surround us.

In the face of evil
Forgive us our complacency.

The burning bush flickers beside us.
The presence of God invites us.

In the presence of the holy
Forgive us our lack of notice.

The Red Sea waters stand at attention.
The threshold of grace is breath-taking.

In the company of grace
Forgive us our reticence to embrace.

Invitation to Pardon

Hungry bellies and grumbling souls
are not the final word.

Manna and quail and water
fill the bellies and calm the souls.

The gifts of God reign
o'er the people of God.

Come for all things are ready.
