Prayer of Confession (in unison)

I confess to thee, my God.  I acknowledge my greed. I admit that in the use of my worldly goods I have set myself against thee and thy holy laws. Scarcely, if at all, have I given when the need of my neighbor required it.  I confess that I have been untrue and unfaithful toward my neighbor. I have failed to defend his honor and reputation as my own.  I acknowledge that my life is nothing else than transgression of thy commandments and an inclination toward all evil.

O heavenly Father, forgive me these and all my sins.   Amen.

       --Martin Bucer 1539

 

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader:  The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15).

People:  He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed (I Peter 2:24).
