Call to worship
Prepare the way of the Lord!
We will make his paths straight!
The Valley will be lifted up
The mountains will be made low
The poor shall be lifted up
The powerful shall be brought low
We gather to prepare the way for the Lord!
Let us worship to prepare the way for the Lord!
Prayer of the Day
P: God of Transformation,
C Inspire in us the courage to turn towards back to you in our words and actions. May your word inspire us to prepare the way for the coming of your son through reflection and repentance. Grant us the humility to confess together, the courage to confess individually, and the strength to not resist being reformed by your spirit. In the name of God our creator, Jesus our Savior, and the Holy Spirit our guide, Amen.
