For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Exodus 20.16

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess to You that we have broken Your Law. We have ‘shaded the truth’ to avoid embarrassment. We have gossiped. We have spoken rashly against others. We have failed to defend our neighbors’ good names when others have slandered them. In these and other ways we have disobeyed this commandment. We come again to ask forgiveness of our hateful sins. We do this through Jesus, the only one who can provide forgiveness. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1.8-9

The almighty and merciful Lord grant you pardon and forgiveness of all your sins, time for amendment of life, and the grace and strength of the Holy Spirit.
