Call to Worship (Psalm 62:1-2)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
People: He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
I, confess to thee, merciful God, that I have not believed in thee, my one God and Father, but have put my faith and trust more in creatures than in thee, because I have feared them more than thee. And for their benefit and pleasure, I have done and left undone many things in disobedience to thee and thy commandments.
I confess that I have taken thy holy Name in vain, that I have often sworn falsely and lightly by the same, that I have not always professed it nor kept it holy as I ought; but even more, I have slandered it often and grossly with all my life, words, and deeds.
Wherefore I beseech thee, O heavenly Father, that, thou wouldst graciously forgive me these and all my sins. Through Jesus Christ, thy dear Son, our Savior. Amen.
--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).
