Call to Worship (based on John 13:15-16)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: Jesus said, I have set you an example, do as I have done.
People: Servants are not greater than their master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them.
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
I, poor sinner, confess to thee, O Almighty, eternal, merciful God and Father, that I have sinned in manifold ways against thee and thy commandments.
I confess that I have not believed in thee, my one God and Father, as I ought to have believed in thee. I trusted more in reason, more in things, more in people, than in thee, my God and Creator. I admired and feared the things of man more than thee. And for their benefit and pleasure, I have done and left undone many things in disobedience to thee and thy commandments.
Wherefore I beseech thee, O heavenly Father, that, thou wouldst graciously forgive me these and all my sins. Keep and preserve me henceforth that I may walk only in thy way and live according to thy will; and all of this through Jesus Christ, thy dear Son, our Savior. Amen.
---- Derived from 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).
