Call to Worship (Matthew 25:31,34)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
People: Then he will say to those at his right hand,
Leader: Come, you that are blessed by my Father,
People: Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
Most holy and merciful Father; we acknowledge and confess before thee; our sinful nature prone to evil and slothful in good; and all our shortcomings and offenses. Thou alone knowest how often we have sinned; In wandering from thy ways; In wasting thy gifts; In forgetting thy love. But thou, O Lord, have mercy; upon us; Who are ashamed and sorry; for all wherein we have displeased thee. Teach us to hate our errors; Cleanse us from our secret faults; And forgive our sins; For the sake of thy dear Son. And O most holy and loving Father; Help us, we beseech thee; To live in thy light and walk in thy ways; According to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness (Psalm 103:8,10-12)
Leader: The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
People: For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.

41 Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;
42 for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,
43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.'
44 Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?'
45 Then he will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.'
46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
