For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Exodus 20.16

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess to You that we have broken Your Law. We have ‘shaded the truth’ to avoid embarrassment. We have gossiped. We have spoken rashly against others. We have failed to defend our neighbors’ good names when others have slandered them. In these and other ways we have disobeyed this commandment. We come again to ask forgiveness of our hateful sins. We do this through Jesus, the only one who can provide forgiveness. 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 God who loved the world so much that he sent his Son to be our Saviour forgive us our sins and make us holy to serve him in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Book of Common Prayer
