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
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5.1

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
