Prayer of Confession (in unison)
O Lord God, ever-loving Father, we confess that we are poor sinners, conceived and born in iniquity and corruption, prone to do evil, and that in our depravity we transgress thy holy commandments without end or ceasing: Wherefore we purchase for ourselves our ruin and perdition. Nevertheless, O Lord, we are grieved that we have offended thee; and we condemn ourselves and ours sins with true repentance, beseeching thy grace to relieve our distress. O God, have mercy upon us in the name of thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. And as thou dost blot out our sins and stains, magnify and increase in us day by day the grace of thy Holy Spirit; that as we acknowledge our unrighteousness with all our heart, we may be moved by that sorrow which shall bring forth true repentance in us, and produce in us the fruits of righteousness and innocence which are pleasing unto thee; through the same Jesus Christ our lord. Amen.
(John Calvin Geneva 1542)
Declaration of Forgiveness
Leader: The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Timothy 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).

Psalm 104:1-9, 24
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty,
2 wrapped in light as with a garment. You stretch out the heavens like a tent,
3 you set the beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind,
4 you make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers.
5 You set the earth on its foundations, so that it shall never be shaken.
6 You cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At your rebuke they flee; at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.
8 They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys to the place that you appointed for them.
9 You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth.
24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
