For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5.8

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we acknowledge that our hearts are not pure. They harbor motives that are not right in Your sight. They conceal secrets from everyone but You. They shelter many sins. We confess to You that we are convicted by Your Law. We are reminded again that we are sinners. We ask that You would forgive us our sin. We know that we can ask for this only because of Jesus. We thank You for our faithful Savior who gives to us His purity. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Isaiah 43.25

May the God of love and power forgive you and free you from your sins, heal and strengthen you by his Spirit, and raise you to new life in Christ our Lord.
