For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4.32

Confession of Sin
Our Father, at times we find ourselves abrupt instead of kind, preoccupied and indifferent instead of tenderhearted, and even holding a grudge instead of being quick to forgive. In this we sin against You as well as against others. Please, be gracious and forgive us. We thank You for showing us our sin. We thank You for being so willing to forgive. We thank You for Jesus who makes all this real for us. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15.3

May the Father of all mercies cleanse us from our sins, and restore us in his image to the praise and glory of his name, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Book of Common Prayer
