  • Call to Confession and Prayer:   (unison)  Eternal and Almighty God, you have long sought for us and we have fled.  You have offered us an easy yoke, and we have tied ourselves down with cares and burdens.  You have forgiven us, and we have complained against our sisters and brothers.  Give us a conversion that turns us around to face the light; teach us a repentance that lives in works of love; lead us into the narrow path; guide us through the valley of the shadow of death.  Call us to follow Jesus and in his way to life and suffer, die and rise again.  In his name, hear our silent prayers of return …
