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

Psalm 85:4-13


4  Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us.

5  Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?

6  Will you not revive us again, so that your people may rejoice in you?

7  Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.

8  Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.

9  Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.

10  Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.

11  Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky.

12  The LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.

13  Righteousness will go before him, and will make a path for his steps.
