INTRODUCTION TO THE TABLE
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UR, 37B)
God of all mercy,
we confess that we have sinned against you, opposing your will in our lives.
We have denied your goodness in each other, in ourselves, and in the world you have created.
We repent of the evil that enslaves us,
the evil we have done,
an evil done on our behalf.
Forgive, restore, and strengthen us
through our Savior Jesus Christ,
that we may abide in your love
and serve only your will. Amen.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven people. Glory to God!
THE GREAT THANKSGIVING
The Lord be with you. And also with you.
Lift up your heats. We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise.
. . . And so, with you people on earth and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your
glory. Hosanna in the highest Blessed is He who comes in the name of The Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
. . . as we proclaim the mystery of faith; Christ has died, Christ has risen,
Christ will come again,
. . . all honor and glory is yours, Almighty God, now and forever. Amen.

GIVING THE BREAD AND THE CUP
