For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. 1 John 5.21

Confession of Sin
Our Father, You are the only God. You are the only one worthy of the name. And though we know that, there are so many times that we expect someone or something else to do what only You can do. Forgive us our idolatry. Change us thoroughly by the power of your Spirit. For Jesus’ sake, Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
May the God of all healing and forgiveness draw us to himself, and cleanse us from all our sins that we may behold the glory of his Son, the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ our Lord.  
Book of Common Prayer

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55.6-7
