For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7.13-14

Confession of Sin
Our Father, forgive us when we complain  about the difficulties of living as faithful disciples  in this fallen world.  Our Lord Jesus told us  that the way to life would be hard.  Forgive us and convince our hearts  that the difficulties are more than worth it  since this is the way  by which we will gain eternal life.  Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God. 1 Peter 3.18

May the God of all healing and forgiveness draw us to himself, and cleanse us from all our sins that we may behold the glory of his Son, the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Book of Common Prayer
