Call to Worship (II Corinthians 8:9)
Leader: The Lord be with you,
People: And with you also.
Leader: For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich,
People: yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Prayer of Confession: (in unison)
Most holy and merciful Father; we acknowledge and confess before thee; our sinful nature prone to evil and slothful in good; and all our shortcomings and offenses. Thou alone knowest how often we have sinned; In wandering from thy ways; In wasting thy gifts; In forgetting thy love. But thou, O Lord, have mercy; upon us; Who are ashamed and sorry; for all wherein we have displeased thee. Teach us to hate our errors; Cleanse us from our secret faults; And forgive our sins; For the sake of thy dear Son. And O most holy and loving Father; Help us, we beseech thee; To live in thy light and walk in thy ways; According to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
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).
