For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4.4-7

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess to You that instead of rejoicing always in the Lord Jesus and in what He is doing in us, we all too frequently complain about difficult aspects of our lives. Instead of making our requests known to You by prayer, we try to work it all out by ourselves. And so, instead of enjoying Your peace, we become anxious. We have scorned Your promises. Forgive us, Father, for our unbelief. Teach our hearts how to enjoy Your Gospel. 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.

Book of Common Prayer
