RESPONSE TO THE WORD (Unison)

Pastor Bob

Merciful God, help us sit silently and feel the depth of your love.  Settle our spirits, that we might know just how far you go to bring us the cup of salvation. In the midst of a week of betrayal and denial, help us forgive the betrayals and denials we commit in our own time and place.  In your holy name, we pray. Amen.
