Prayer of Approach : Prayer of Adoration 

Prayer of Confession in unison 
Our Father, forgive us for thinking small thoughts of you and for ignoring your immensity and greatness. Lord Jesus, forgive us when we forget that you rule the nations and our small lives. Holy Spirit, we offend you in minimizing your power and squandering your gifts. We confess that our blindness to your glory has resulted in shallow confession, tepid conviction, and only mild repentance. Have mercy upon us. Amen. 

Lord, have mercy upon us. 
Christ, have mercy upon us. 
Lord, have mercy upon us.
