Call to Worship (Luke 4:18-19)

Leader: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;

People: He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,

Leader: And recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

People: To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father;

We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us.

But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou those, O God, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind In Christ Jesus our Lord.

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

Declaration of Forgivenesss

Leader: Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)

People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)
