For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
If you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5.23-24

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we do not recognize how evil it is to fail to be reconciled to each other. All too often we fail to deal with sins against each other. We fail to resolve problems that separate us. We try to ignore these problems instead of trying to solve them. We stand condemned. We ask that You might forgive us this sin by the blood of Jesus’ Cross. Please teach us the ways of right living in our families and in our church so that the world might see the fruit of the Gospel in our lives. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. Romans 8.1,2

May the Father forgive us by the death of his Son and strengthen us to live in the power of the Spirit all our days.
The Book of Common Prayer
