For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God    
And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 1 Peter 1.17-19

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we admit to You that we are not as careful as we should be when it comes to how we conduct our lives. By our carelessness, we do not honor the precious blood of Christ. We know that You will evaluate each of us accordingly. We ask that You might be gracious again and forgive us this sin. We also ask that Your Spirit might make us more careful in conducting ourselves in ways that are fitting for disciples of Christ. Grant us our requests for Jesus’ sake. 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.
Book of Common Prayer
