For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
You shall not commit adultery. Exodus 20.14

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we come to You confronted by our sin. You call us to be chaste and pure in thought, word and deed. We confess to You that we have not been. We have broken this commandment. There are things that we do and think that would shame us if others knew. There are desires in our hearts that make us worthy of hell. We offer no excuse for our impurity. We simply cling to Christ and ask that You forgive us because of His blood. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
May God our Father forgive us our sins, and bring us to the fellowship of his table with his saints for ever.  
The Book of Common Prayer

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 1 Timothy 1.15
