For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's. Exodus 20.17

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess to You that we have coveted. We have been dissatisfied with the good things that You have given to us. We have been jealous when others have prospered. We have longed for things that we have no right to. We see this as an insult to You and a rejection of Your loving plan for our lives. We know that breaking this commandment even once merits us eternal torment. We ask for forgiveness not because we deserve it but only because of Jesus, our Savior. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Almighty God, who in Jesus Christ has given us a kingdom that cannot be destroyed, forgive us our sins, open our eyes to God's truth, strengthen us to do God's will and give us the joy of his kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2.1-2
