Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

I, poor sinner, confess to thee, O Almighty, eternal, merciful God and Father, that I have sinned in manifold ways against thee and thy commandments.

I acknowledge my greed. I admit that in the use of my worldly goods I have set myself against thee and thy holy laws. Greedily and against charity have I grasped them.  And scarcely, if at all, have I given of them when the need of my neighbor required it. 

I confess that I have born false witness, that I have been untrue and unfaithful toward my neighbor.  I have failed to defend his honor and reputation as my own.

Wherefore I beseech thee, O heavenly Father, that, thou wouldst graciously forgive me these and all my sins.  Keep and preserve me henceforth that I may walk only in thy way and live according to thy will; and all of this 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).

“What good does it do to speak learnedly about the Trinity if, lacking humility, you displease the Trinity?  Indeed it is not learning that makes us holy and just, but a virtuous life makes us pleasing to God.” (Thomas a Kempis, Imitation of Christ, Book I, Chapter 1)
