For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5.3

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we confess to You that we are not poor in spirit. Sadly, we are too like those around us. We think so well of ourselves. We are proud. We do not recognize how poor and weak and needy we really are. We do not believe this part of the Gospel very well. We acknowledge our sin. We ask that You would forgive us. We ask that You would change us. We ask this only because of Jesus, our Savior. 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 bring us back to himself, forgive us our sins, and assure us of his eternal love in Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Book of Common Prayer
