People: Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Righteous God, You have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before him. We are slow to acknowledge his rule. We are faithful to the wrong things. We give allegiance to the powers of this world. We fail to be governed by justice and love. In your mercy, forgive us. Raise us to acclaim him as ruler of all, that we may be loyal ambassadors, Obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ. For it is in his name that, we pray. Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness

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)
