For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
You shall not murder. Exodus 20.13

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we come to You aware that we have not kept this commandment. We so often find ourselves angry and impatient, thinking of our own well-being first. We understand that in these and other ways we murder. We have broken Your Law. We acknowledge our sin before You and ask that You would be merciful to us sinners for Jesus’ sake alone. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon  
May God who loved the world so much that he sent his Son to be our Saviour forgive us our sins and make us holy to serve him in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord. The Book of Common Prayer

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21
