For Sunday

Reading of the Law of God
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4. 1-2

Confession of Sin
Our Father, we admit that, all too often, we do not walk worthy of the Gospel. All too often, we are proud and not humble, harsh and not gentle. We so easily become impatient, refusing to bear with the weaknesses and sins of others. We sin in these ways even as we expect others not to treat us similarly. We have no excuse and admit that we deserve Your justice. But we believe the Gospel of Jesus. And so, we would ask for forgiveness. We would also ask for change. Make us more like Jesus, through whom we pray. Amen.

Declaration of Pardon
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” John 11.25

May the God of love bring us back to himself, forgive us our sins, and assure us of his eternal love in Jesus Christ our Lord.
 The Book of Common Prayer
