Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

TRUSTING in Your goodness and great mercy, O Lord, I come as one sick to the Healer, as one hungry and thirsty to the Fountain of life, as one in need to the King of heaven, a servant to his Lord, a creature to his Creator, a soul in desolation to my gentle Comforter.

But why do you come to me? 

Who am I that You should offer Yourself to me?  

How dares the sinner to appear in Your presence, and You, O Lord, why do You condescend to come to the sinner?  

You know Your servant, and You know that I have nothing good in me that You should grant me this.

I confess, therefore, my unworthiness.

I acknowledge Your goodness.  Amen.

 [Thomas a Kempis Of the Imitation of Christ, Bk. IV Ch. 2]

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).
