For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Do not quench the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5.19

Confession of Sin 
Our Father, we fail to honor Your Spirit. We so easily doubt that He will do anything significantly new in our lives or in the lives of others. In this we quench the Spirit and hinder His ministry among us. Because of this, there is much good that could happen that doesn’t. Forgive us our sin. Change us so that we might expect great things from Your Spirit’s work in our midst. We pray through Jesus, our faithful Savior. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. Proverbs 28.13

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
