God gives us these wonderful words of promise and words of hope…

“I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature.

This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me the earth!”

So come, all you people, come and worship. God has made a covenant with us.

Let us remember the covenant and be thankful!

 Prayer OF CONFESSION

God of the rainbow, you made a covenant with all creatures, promising life and hope. God of pathways, you show us how we should walk.

Yet we forget our connection with one another and think that we are the center of the universe. We wander from your paths of truth into paths of deceit and pride. Forgive us and lead us back into the arms of your love…

(silent prayers of confession)

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Give us this day our daily bread.

For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever. Amen.
