For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5.8

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we acknowledge that our hearts are not pure. They harbor motives that are not right in Your sight. They conceal secrets from everyone but You. They shelter many sins. We confess to You that we are convicted by Your Law.  We are reminded again that we are sinners.We ask that You would forgive us our sin.  We know that we can ask for this only because of Jesus. We thank You for our faithful Savior who gives to us His purity. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7.18-19

May the God of all healing and forgiveness draw us to himself, and cleanse us from all our sins that we may behold the glory of his Son, the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Book of Common Prayer
