For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6.9-10

Confession of Sin
Our Father, Your Word is clear. Our Father, we hear Your call to persevere in doing good. And yet, we have to admit that we, at times, give in to the weariness and stop. We give up when it gets too hard. This is disobedience. This is sin. We ask that You would forgive us this sin. We ask that You would give us the ability to continue to do what is good to others, even when it gets hard. We ask that You would remind us that there will be a time of reaping, if we do not give up. We ask this through our faithful Savior, Jesus. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55.6-7

Almighty God, who in Jesus Christ has given us a kingdom that cannot be destroyed, forgive us our sins, open our eyes to God's truth, strengthen us to do God's will and give us the joy of his kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Book of Common Prayer
