Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Almighty, eternal God and Father, we confess and acknowledge unto thee that we were conceived in unrighteousness and are full of sin and transgression in all our life. We do not fully believe thy word nor follow thy holy commandments. Remember thy goodness, we beseech thee, and for thy name's sake be gracious unto us, and forgive us our iniquity. This we pray in the name of the only-begotten Son, 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 Timothy 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).
