For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5.4

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we admit that we do not mourn over sin like You do. When we see sin do its destructive work in others’ lives, we do not mourn like You do. When we see sin at work in our own lives, we do not mourn like You do. We pass over sin and its effects far too casually, something You don’t do. We need to be forgiven, and we need to be changed. We appeal to You in the name of Jesus that we might mourn over sin like You do and thus find ourselves comforted by You. 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

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.
The Book of Common Prayer
