Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

O Lord God, we confess and acknowledge unfeignedly before thy holy majesty that we are poor sinners, prone to do evil, incapable of any good, and that in our depravity we transgress thy holy commandments without end or ceasing: Wherefore we purchase for ourselves, through thy righteous judgement, 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 and Father most gracious and full of compassion, 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, mortifying all our sins and producing in us the fruits of righteousness and innocence which are pleasing unto thee; through the same Jesus Christ our lord.  Amen.

         (John Calvin 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 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).
