For Suday

Reading of the Law of God    
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7.24-27

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess that far too often we hear the Word but do not do it. This is very foolish. This is very sinful. We ask that You would forgive us this sin. We ask that You would make us wise. We ask that You would make us obedient. We ask this in the name of our faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9,10

May almighty God, who sent his Son into the world to save sinners, bring you his pardon and peace, now and for ever.  

Book of Common Prayer
