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.


Opening Prayer


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).
