Praise the Lord, all the earth!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise the Lord in the heights.
Praise the name of the Lord,
and the Lord’s glory shall be praised,
for people near and people far,
for people present and people to come,
for the young and for those wise with age.
Come, let us praise the Lord;
come, let us worship God.

CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
you command us to love one another,
yet we hold grudges and refuse to work for peace.
You command us to care for all of creation,
yet we neglect the earth
and abuse nature through carelessness.
You command us to walk in the ways of Jesus,
yet we too often walk our own way.
Forgive us, O God.
Guide us as we work toward
a new heaven here on earth.
Lead us to reconciliation
and a vision for your beloved community,
as we share your love with your people everywhere.
