CONFESSION OF SIN
“Forgive us, O Lord, for everything that spoils our witness for you; that we so often deny with our lives what we say with our lips; for the difference between our creed and our conduct, our profession and our practice; for any example that makes it easier for people to criticise your church or for another to sin. Grant to us a true penitence for our sins and cleanse us from them by the blood of Christ. Strengthen us by your Spirit, so that in the coming days we might honour you in every sphere of our lives. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.”
ASSURANCE OF GOD’S PARDON
“If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities."
