For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5.6-7

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we find it so hard to humble ourselves under Your mighty hand. We see dangers, both real and imagined, and we are quick to look to our own resources to ward them off. But instead of enjoying peace, we find ourselves becoming even more anxious. Forgive us for our pride in our abilities. Forgive us for not trusting You. Grant us the grace we need to trust You enough to rest quietly in Your arms, knowing that You care for us. In Jesus’ Name,  Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are my servant; I formed you; you are my servant; O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me. ​I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you.Isaiah 44:21-22

May the Father forgive us by the death of his Son and strengthen us to live in the power of the Spirit all our days.
Book of Common Prayer
