*Unison Confession

Today we worship;

 confident that God’s promise to be with us always – is true,

 confident that God is greater than the trials we face,

 confident that we are secure in God’s embrace.

 Today we worship;

 like blind Bartimaeus who sat on the side of the road to Jericho, knowing that;

 God loves us, has not forgotten us and desires for us to be whole.

Unison Prayer

God, our Provider. We praise you as the one who meets

our needs and restores us to wholeness.

We worship you in a world where wealth is mixed with poverty;

where we have all we need, but often don’t know how to share,

where hunger, thirst and humiliation often go unseen

by those with the power to offer challenge and bring change.

Open our eyes, that we might see the world in all its awful and beautiful reality.

Open the eyes of our heart that we may offer a place of compassion

and mercy in this world.

Where there is need, teach us to learn where our wealth lies, and help us to give.

Where there is injustice, teach us to learn the causes, and help us to fight.

Where there is brokenness, teach us to learn of our own brokenness,

and help us to bring wholeness.

Help us to look to you, that we neither remain ignorant of the world,

nor lose ourselves in despair at its brokenness.

We praise and worship you as the God who provides.

Help us to accept your gifts of new sight and new life –

and help us to bring those gifts to others.
