Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you

in thought, word, and deed,

by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength.

We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

In your mercy, forgive what we have been,

help us amend what we are,

and direct what we shall be,

so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your holy name.

This we pray in the name of the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord.  Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader: Hear the Good News! Jesus himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness.

People: By his wounds, we have been healed. For we were going astray like sheep, but now we have returned to the shepherd and guardian of our souls. Praise the Lord!

All: The Lord's name be praised. Alleluia. Amen.
