Prayers for 19th Ordinary C

Prayer of Adoration

Our dear Father-God,
whose power is immeasurable,
whose compassion is inexhaustible,
whose good pleasure it is
to give to us the kingdom
we come as your little flock
for shelter, nurture, and security,
to which no treasure can compare.
O Father-God, we love you,
and we know that you love us;
in the name of the Father
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.  Amen.

Invitation to Confession

After entering God’s presence,
we become aware of our sinfulness.
Our culture teaches us
to treasure trinkets,
Our desires teach us
to treasure indulgence,
Our fears teach us
to treasure treasure,
Our hearts are where our treasure is,
so we confess
our failure of faith,
that we may hear
a hopeful word of pardon.
Let us therefore confess our sins
in humility and confident trust.
