For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4.29

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we admit that we have failed with our words. By our words we tear down instead of encourage.  By our words we express annoyance instead of patience.  By our words we show that we consider our desires  more important than the needs of others. We ask that You would forgive these sins of our mouths.  Make us more aware of what we say to each other.  Change our hearts so that   our words would give grace to those around us.  We ask these things for Jesus’ sake. 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 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
