Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Almighty, eternal God and Father, we confess and acknowledge that we, alas, were conceived and born in sin, and are therefore inclined to all evil and slow to all good; that we transgress thy holy commandments without ceasing, and ever more corrupt ourselves. 

But we are sorry for the same, and beseech thy grace and help.  Wherefore have mercy upon us, most gracious and merciful God and Father, through thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Grant to us and increase in us thy Holy Spirit, that we may recognize our sin and unrighteousness from the bottom of our hearts, attain true repentance and sorrow for them, die to them wholly, and please thee entirely by a new and godly life.  Amen.

(Martin Bucer, 1539)


Declaration of Forgiveness (Romans 8:38-39)

Leader:  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,

People:  Shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

An Irish friendship wish

May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
