For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5.6

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we hear Your call to yearn for what is right. But, sadly, there are times when our hunger for other things overwhelms any yearning to see Your righteousness prevail. In this we falter in our love for You. In this we sin. We are truly sorry for how we have grieved You. We ask that You would, again, forgive us our sin. We ask that You would strengthen our love for You so that we might pursue what is right more faithfully. We are bold to ask these things only because of Jesus. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53.6

May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.   

  The Book of Common Prayer
